British Prime Minister Theresa May opened her remarks ahead of a joint press conference with President Donald Trump by outlining the unity between the two countries.
“No two countries do more together than ours to keep their people safe and prosperous,” May said. “And we want to deepen that cooperation even further to meet the shared challenges we face now and in years ahead.”
She outlined a number of examples where the two shared common priorities, such as fighting the use of chemical weapons, and ISIS in Syria, sanctions on North Korea, intelligence sharing, military cooperation, terrorism, and creating jobs.
“It is all of our responsibility to ensure that transatlantic unity endures,” she added, “for it has been fundamental to the protection and projection of our interests and values for generations.”
