12:08 PM: Biden and Johnson unveil updated Atlantic Charter with focus on old principles and new threats

Upon the conclusion of their meeting, Biden and Johnson unveiled a “revitalized” Atlantic Charter, an update to an 80-year-old document that restates both nations’ commitment to the NATO military alliance but also addresses new challenges, including climate change, cyberattacks and election interference.

The original Atlantic Charter was a joint statement by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill in 1941 that set out their goals for cooperation following World War II.

“Our revitalised Atlantic Charter, building on the commitments and aspirations set out eighty years ago, affirms our ongoing commitment to sustaining our enduring values and defending them against new and old challenges,” Biden and Johnson say in the new document. “We commit to working closely with all partners who share our democratic values and to countering the efforts of those who seek to undermine our alliances and institutions.”
