Watch live: Nato world leaders arrive for Washington DC summit

Date:

Watch live as world leaders arrive for a Nato summit in Washington DC on Wednesday, 10 July.

Sir Keir Starmer has travelled to the US in one of his first international engagements as British prime minister.

Speaking to journalists on his flight over, the PM said he hoped the summit will “Trump proof” aid to Ukraine to help it hold off Russia.

Sir Keir insisted that the defence and security of Britain and its allies will be his first priority, but would not give a timetable on when his “iron clad commitment” to increase defence spending to 2.5 per cent will come into force.

Later today, US secretary of state Antony Blinken and Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg will join other world leaders in addressing the Nato Public Forum.

Other leaders present and due to speak at the summit include US secretary of defence Lloyd Austin and UK defence secretary John Healey.
