The PM welcomes this US initiative and was pleased to be able to deliver the UK statement. The UK was also able to field Ministers across a range of summit events, including on Democracy-Affirming Technology and Disability-Inclusive Democracy. We will continue to partner with the US, and others, to make the "Year of Action" on democracy a success, building momentum for the planned in-person second Summit. This is an opportunity to advance the Network of Liberty through collaborating on technology, trade, investment and infrastructure so that together, democracies can advance the cause of freedom from a position of strength. We look forward to continued engagement with the US and our allies on this vital agenda.
