A unique relationship exists between the United States and the United Kingdom. It is a relationship rooted in common history, common values, and common interests around the globe.

Our two nations hold fundamental values in common. We honor our traditions and our shared history. We recognize that the strongest societies respect the rights and dignity of the individual. We understand and accept the burdens of global leadership. And we have built our special relationship on the surest foundations -- our deep and abiding love of liberty.
