AFP: Prime Minister Rishi Sunak flew in to Washington late yesterday lobbying for Britain to take a lead role in regulating artificial intelligence, after a dire warning of the technology’s existential dangers.
Sunak will meet President Joe Biden today for a White House summit, pledging unstinting support for Ukraine after Russia was accused of blowing up a major dam to thwart an apparent counter-offensive.
Any intentional attack on the Kakhovka dam would represent “the largest attack on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine since the start of the war, and just would demonstrate the new lows that we would have seen from Russian aggression,” Sunak told reporters aboard his plane from London.
But while the United States and Britain are inching closer on giving Ukraine air support, and on a robust approach to China, Sunak faces a harder sell with Biden about the UK’s post-Brexit relevance elsewhere.
