The close relationship between the U.S. and the U.K. means the two countries can disagree on certain issues but still find solutions, British Prime Minister Theresa May told CNBC Wednesday.
Speaking in an exclusive interview at 10 Downing Street, May said there are "some" issues where she doesn't see eye-to-eye with President Donald Trump, but added that "the special relationship" would continue and "endure long into the future."
"We disagree on the steel and aluminum tariffs that have been imposed on the European Union, and the U.K. within that. And we disagree on the nuclear deal in Iran," she told CNBC's Steve Sedgwick.
"The point about the relationship is that we're able to have those disagreements and talk those through. But that special relationship between the U.S. and the U.K. continues and I think will endure long into the future."
The U.K. is against the U.S.'s decision to implement metal tariffs against the EU, with the Trump administration claiming that the imports are a national security threat. Trump's decision to pull out of a nuclear deal with Iran also upset the U.K., who said the deal had been working.
