    UK Prime Minister said that the "special relationship" between the United Kingdom and the United Stated will remain whoever is the next US president.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The "special relationship" between the United Kingdom and the United Stated will remain whoever is the next US president, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Friday.

    "I believe in a special relationship. The special relationship will work whoever is in whichever jobs in the UK or in the US — it is a shared interest about values, about security and prosperity in the world," he told journalists at the G7 Summit in Japan.

    Cameron also noted that he might meet US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump if he would come to the United Kingdom before the US elections.

    "In terms of Donald Trump in the UK — you know, often these candidates choose to come through various European countries in the run up of the US elections. I do not know if it happens this time, no dates are fixed. I am always happy to meet people on the basis I met other candidates before," he noted.

    In December 2015, Trump proposed a "total and complete" ban for Muslims entering the United States, as well as an Islamic registration and control of certain mosques. Following the announcement, Cameron called the idea "divisive, stupid and wrong."
