LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris condemned the countries which have supported Russian President Vladimir Putin’s efforts in Ukraine, Sunak’s office said, describing the war as a “global war”.
“The Prime Minister and Vice President Harris condemned those countries who have supported Putin’s efforts politically and militarily,” his office said in a statement after their meeting at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.
“They agreed that Putin’s war in Ukraine is a global war, both in terms of its impact on food and energy security and in terms of its implications for internationally accepted norms like sovereignty,” the statement added.
