US President Donald Trump will come face to face with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull next week as both men travel to New York City to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea. The May 4 event will be the first time the two have met in person and spoken since their heated phone call in January regarding a controversial US-Australia refugee resettlement deal.
The president will speak aboard the USS Intrepid museum for the commemoration of the major World War II naval battle in which the United States joined with Australia to halt the advance of enemy forces. That same day he will hold a bilateral meeting with the PM.
"The president looks forward to meeting the prime minister and to strengthening the enduring bonds, deep friendship, and close alliance between the United States and Australia," a White House statement read Tuesday.
