The British government confirmed today that US President Donald Trump will make a state visit in the coming months to the United Kingdom, despite the controversy generated in the country by this invitation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes that the Government recognizes the 'strong' opinions that this visit may provoke, but does not share the request to cancel it signed by 1.8 million people.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the executive insisted that the White House chief should be received with 'total courtesy.'

During her trip to Washington on January 27, British Prime Minister Theresa May extended the invitation to the American dignitary.

The government considers that rejecting the visit would be a populist gesture and would seriously damage relations between both countries, despite the popular clamor generated by the temporary veto imposed by Trump on the entry into the United States of citizens of several Muslim-majority nations.

Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow opposed Trump's speech to Parliament during his forthcoming visit.
