US President Joe Biden calls for the newly elected Republican speaker of the US House of Representatives to act quickly on approving military aid for Israel and Ukraine.

“We need to move swiftly to address our national security needs and to avoid a shutdown in 22 days,” Biden says in a statement congratulating Mike Johnson on his election after weeks of gridlock.

“Even though we have real disagreements about important issues, there should be mutual effort to find common ground wherever we can. This is a time for all of us to act responsibly.”
