In Washington on November 14, 2018, the United States and the United Kingdom held a Strategic Dialogue co-chaired by U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale and UK Political Director Richard Moore. The Dialogue was attended by U.S. National Security Council Staff Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs Fiona Hill, U.S. Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs Katie Wheelbarger, UK Deputy National Security Advisor Christian Turner, UK Director General for EU Exit Lindsay Appleby and UK Ministry of Defense Director General for Strategy and International Angus Lapsley.

The delegations discussed a broad range of global foreign and security policy issues of mutual concern and agreed to continue to work closely together. The countries pledged their continued commitment and efforts to strengthen the broader transatlantic community for challenges of the future.

At the close of this Strategic Dialogue, the United States and the United Kingdom reaffirmed that the U.S.-UK special relationship yields unparalleled cooperation, which will only grow stronger in the years ahead and as the UK exits the European Union.
