Hillary Clinton affirms special relationship with Britain
In Washington DC, UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband and new US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hold first meeting. Mrs Clinton said:
"It's often said that the United States and Great Britain have long enjoyed a special relationship. Well, it's certainly special in my mind and one that has proven very productive. Whoever is in the White House, whichever party in our country, this relationship really stands the test of time."
There have been concerns that the US-UK relationship will be downgraded under America's 44th President.
