US President Joe Biden met with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at the White House on Thursday and said the two leaders discussed the need to strengthen critical mineral supply chains.

Biden said a “key piece” of protecting technologies that are key to the national security interests of both countries is to strengthen such supply chains.

“So we’re not dependent on any one country to meet our goals,” Biden said.
