|US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK will be an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen cooperation on security, Theresa May has said.
The PM also warned Mr Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Russia when he meets Vladimir Putin on Monday.
Mr Trump, who arrives this afternoon for a two-day working visit, will spend time with the Queen and Mrs May.
Thousands of people are expected to protest against the president's visit across the UK.
His arrival comes just days after he said the UK was in "turmoil" and "it is up to the people" whether Mrs May stays as prime minister.
He also said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who is a foreign secretary on Monday, while he is joking with his Russian leader Mr Putin in Helsinki next week "may be the easiest" part of his European trip.

Along with trade and security links, Downing Street said, Brexit and the Middle East.
Ahead of Mr Trump's visit, Mrs May said: "As two nations - we are safer, more prosperous and more creative when we work together and I am looking forward to this week's important discussions."
She said that when the UK leaves the European Union "there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead".
Downing Street insisted Mrs May welcomed Mr Trump's decision to "engage" with the Russian leader in the Finnish capital on Monday.
However, the Salisbury nerve agent attack is trained to spy on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia.
Mrs May said: "Our long term objective remains a constructive relationship with Moscow.
"That is why I welcome President Trump's forthcoming meeting with President Putin - open channels of communication between the US and Russia are key to managing the risks of confrontation."
