Ok, thanks for clarifying.

When the chips are down, as they were during the Iran hostage crisis and 9/11, Canada is there for us in the US. I bless Canada every day and stand whenever I hear "O Canada." We're like siblings who may disagree on certain matters but are never hateful to each other about it.

When it comes to the "people", Canada and the US are closer IMO than US-UK.


When it comes to politics and strategic matters, I'd US-UK are closer than Canada-US.

- Olen erittäin iloinen voidessani toivottaa hyvän ystäväni Saulin vieraaksi tänne Tallinnaan, Ilves toivotti leveällä amerikkalaisella englannillaan. Ilves kuvaili maiden välisiä suhteita ainutlaatuisiksi.
Niinistö kehaisi tavanneensa Ilveksen jo niin monta kertaa, että on jo seonnut laskuissa.
- Meidän suhteissamme ei ole edes niitä erimielisyyksiä, joita sisarusten suhteissa yleensä on, Niinistö luonnehti.



Presidentti Ilves kertoi puolestaan, että Venäjä ei suhtaudu Viroon samalla tavalla kuin Suomeen. Kun Viro pyysi Venäjältä samanlaista rajajärjestelyä kuin sillä on Suomen kanssa, vastaus oli kielteinen.
- Te ette ole Suomi, unohtakaa se, kertoi Ilves Venäjän suurlähettilään siihen vastanneen.
Presidenteiltä kysyttiin myös Pohjoismaiden yhteisestä vierailusta Valkoisessa talossa. Niinistö vakuutti, ettei Suomen esiintyminen Pohjoismaisessa blokissa tarkoita selän kääntämistä Baltian maille.
- Me pystymme syömään purkkaa ja kävelemään yhtä aikaa, säesti Ilves.

Perhaps there are other BFF relationships that have yet to be listed?

The odd thing about the Canada-US relationship is that we have a high opinion of Canada, but we more or less ignore the country.
