A spokesperson for PM May said Friday that US President Trump has accepted the invitation to visit the UK and is welcome in London.

"The invitation has been extended and accepted. The US is one of our oldest and most valued allies and our strong and deep partnership will endure," the spokesperson said, adding that no date has been confirmed for the visit.

Relations between Washington and London soured late last year after Trump's retweets of anti-Muslim videos from a British far-right group, which triggered tensions between Washington and London.
