Nick Clegg has visited Washington DC to meet with senior US officials and take part in a UK-US forum on social mobility.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Vice President last met at the White House in September 2010.
In a brief visit to the US capital, the Deputy Prime Minister participated in a joint UK-US conference on social mobility with the Vice President’s Middle Class Task Force. The conference focused on sharing best practice in promoting social mobility, a priority for the Coalition Government.
Mr Clegg also made a call on Vice President Joe Biden at the White House to discuss UK-US cooperation on a range of shared issues including the situation in Libya.
