The 2021 Atlantic Charter will recognize that although the world is very different from 1941, the United Kingdom and the United States share the same values, according to the text.
In the first in-person meeting between the two leaders, they will also address climate change, security, the global trade system, advocacy for democracy, and steps to safely resume transatlantic travel.

Johnson said the agreements we will sign today, based on our shared values and visions, will be the basis for a sustainable global recovery.
This weekend, the two leaders will participate in the first face-to-face meeting of G7 leaders since the start of the pandemic last year.
The summit will take place from 11 to 13 June at a hotel in the Cornwall region, in the southeast of England.
