British Prime Minister Gordon Brown declared on Saturday evening his solidarity with the United States before he flies to Washington on Sunday for his first summit with U.S. President George Bush.

On the eve of his trip the United States, Brown described Britain's ties with the U.S. as "our single most important bilateral relationship," adding "Because of the values we share, the relationship with the United States is not only strong but can become stranger in the years ahead."

"We know that we cannot solve any of the world's major problems without the active engagement of the U.S.," he said, "We will continue to work very closely together as friends to tackle the great global challenges of the future."

Brown and Bush will meet over dinner on Sunday evening at the U.S. presidential retreat of Camp David, where they will discuss Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, the Middle East peace process and climate change. Brown is also set to meet Ban Ki-Moon, the U.N. Secretary-General, on Monday in New York.

In recent weeks, Lord Malloch Brown, the Foreign Office minister and former senior U.N. official, had said that Britain should no longer be "joined at the hip" with the United States.
