On behalf of the United States, we extend our congratulations to Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his appointment by Her Majesty the Queen.

The United States and United Kingdom share a unique partnership and essential alliance, based on a strong foundation of shared values and democratic principles. We look forward to continuing our critical work together with Prime Minister Johnson and his government to further strengthen our enduring special relationship, address mutual challenges, and build on the progress and prosperity we have made on so many fronts. The United States is committed to the U.S.-U.K. shared global agenda, including expanding our robust economic relationship by reaching a comprehensive free trade agreement with the U.K. once it formally withdraws from the European Union.
