British Prime Minister Theresa May said in an interview that President-elect Trump’s lewd comments about women were unacceptable, but she noted that Trump has apologized for the remarks.

In an interview with Sky News, May was asked about Trump’s remark in a 2005 video that he could freely grab women by their genitals because he was a celebrity.

“I think that’s unacceptable, but, in fact, Donald Trump himself has said that and has apologized for it,” May said. “But the relationship that the U.K. has with the United States is about something much bigger than just the relationship between the two individuals as president and prime minister.”

May and Trump will meet this spring in Washington. Trump tweeted Saturday that he was looking “very much forward” to the encounter.

May also suggested that despite comments by Trump that he will demand NATO members pay their fair share, the United States will remain committed to the alliance.

“From the conversations I have had, I think America remains fully committed to NATO as we do,” she said.
