Britain's new leader is coming to America today (Sunday).

It's Gordon Brown's first major overseas trip since he replaced
Tony Blair as Prime Minister. And it will be the first face-to-face
test of his relationship with President Bush.

Brown's hoping to smooth tensions over a perceived turn against
the White House. His government signaled a different relationship
with the Bush administration when he took office last month.

Brown appointed an outspoken critic of the Iraq war to his Cabinet.However, in a statement, Brown says ``the relationship between
an American president and a British prime minister will always bestrong.'' And as he puts it, ``We know that we cannot solve any of
the world's major problems without the active engagement of the
U-S.''

Brown will hold talks with Bush at Camp David and deliver a
speech to the U-N in New York.
