In her remarks, she discussed “the spirit of democracy” that is shared by the U.S. and Great Britain. She mentioned several instances during the 20th century in which the U.S. and Great Britain fought for the same cause, and called for the two countries to continue to fight for common values through the “social instrument” of the United Nations. close
