DUBLIN - Britain takes a different approach to President Donald Trump on immigration restrictions but the United States is a close ally and an invitation for a state visit still stands, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.

Trump's executive order barring refugees and people from seven mainly Muslim countries has caused a global outcry, and in Britain over 1.3 million people have called for his state visit to be canceled.

"The United States is a close ally of the United Kingdom, we work together across many areas of mutual interest and we have that special relationship between us. I have formally issued that invitation to President Trump and that invitations stands," May told a news conference in Dublin.
