To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the nature of the special relationship which they have with the United States; on what basis it occurred; and what are its current benefits. [HL2210]

Our relationship with the US is our single most important bilateral relationship. It is based on shared values, working together to tackle threats to international security, advancing global stability and encouraging freedom and democracy. We are close partners in addressing a wide range of issues including the current economic downturn, counterterrorism, homeland security, nuclear non-proliferation and the Middle East peace process.
