Chancellor Gordon Brown has had private talks with US President George W Bush, American officials have confirmed.
In their first face-to-face meeting, the two men spent 45 minutes at the White House discussing Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as trade liberalisation.
It is thought the meeting was unplanned and was suggested by Mr Bush, who knew the chancellor was at the White House talking to national security officials.
Mr Brown is in Washington for meetings at the International Monetary Fund.
