Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison arrived in Washington, DC, Thursday for a week-long U.S. visit, promising to lay the foundations for another 100 years of friendship between the two staunch allies.
The prime minister was welcomed on arrival at Andrews by the U.S.
It is the first such invitation to an Australian prime minister since George Bush hosted John Howard in 2006.
As Breitbart New reported, he said Australia and America “see the world through the same eyes” and paid elegant tribute to American leadership in the South-West Pacific theater during World War Two, applauding the United States as it “helped secure the freedom we enjoy today” after it joined Australia in turning back Japan from occupying nearby Papua New Guinea.
“Australia believes in what Ronald Reagan called the ‘truths and traditions’ that define the United States,” Morrison said.
