Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a photo opportunity today with The Honorable Scott Morrison MP, Prime Minister of Australia, ahead of a bipartisan leadership meeting. Below are the Speaker’s remarks:
Speaker Pelosi. Good morning, everyone. As House Speaker, it is my official honor and personal privilege to welcome Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia to the United States Capitol. Mr. Prime Minister, it is a privilege to meet with you today for the first time, but at a time – this month, our nations celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the Australia, New Zealand, United States Security Treaty. And now, as we look to the future, the United States remains committed to continuing – strengthening our security partnership, and here, to learn more from you about the Australia-U.K.-U.S. trilateral agreement. Pretty exciting.
I look forward to discussing – all of our Members will have a bipartisan meeting after we leave here to discuss how we can work together on critical priorities. Of course, climate change. And thank you for your leadership in that regard. The COVID crisis, which is still with us, and we can learn from each other about that. Tackling, again, so many other things that in terms of cooperation on security, but also strengthening our relationship in regard to trade and commerce.
So, a lot to discuss. It’s the perfect time for us to receive you here. And I look forward to that discussion, Mr. Prime Minister.
