[Asia News = Reporter Reakkana] Prime Minister Boris Johnson shared that he and President Biden are "working together" to end the row over whether Anne Sacoolas should face trial over the death of 19-year-old Harry Dunn.

Ms Sacoolas claimed diplomatic immunity after the teenager died when her car hit his motorbike almost two years ago. Speaking during the G7, Mr Johnson said the president was "extremely sympathetic" and "actively engaged" in the case. The confirmation of talks comes after Donald Trump refused to intervene. Mr Dunn's mother Charlotte Charles said she "couldn't be more grateful". Crucially, it will raise hopes for Mr Dunn's family that Ms Sacoolas could still be stripped of diplomatic immunity in order to face a British court over the death. She said: "It means a tremendous amount that the first time that Mr Johnson gets an opportunity to meet President Biden face-to-face he raises Harry."

Those international rules protect officials and their families from unjust interference from host nations while they are stationed abroad. While Mr Dunn's parents wait for the possibility of justice via a criminal trial, a senior judge in the US has given them permission to sue Anne Sacoolas and her husband, Jonathan. President Biden lost his first wife, Neilia Hunter, and their one-year-old daughter Naomi in a car crash in 1972 making a lifelong impact on his political career and wider work.
