U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on May 4 in New York City as the two nations seek to repair a relationship strained by a row over an asylum seeker resettlement deal.
The meeting will be the first between the two leaders. Relations were strained after an acrimonious telephone call shortly after Trump’s inauguration, during which Trump labelled the Australia-U.S. resettlement swap agree to with former U.S. President Barack Obama as a “dumb” deal.
Turnbull said the 75th anniversary of the World War Two “Battle of the Coral Sea” celebrations in New York City offered a chance for the two nations to “reaffirm our alliance”.
