British Prime Minister Gordon Brown will visit the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston this Friday and deliver a foreign policy speech, a library spokesman said today.
"We're thrilled, absolutely," said spokesman Brent Carney, who offered no further details.
Brown will visit the United States for several days, making stops in New York, Washington, and Boston, said Joseph Pickerill, an official at the British consulate in Boston.
He said Brown, who has never given a speech before in the United States as prime minister, would give a major foreign policy address directed at an international audience.
