UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has arrived in New York to meet with some of Donald Trump’s closet advisers and senior Congressional leaders.
The discussion will be focused on UK – U.S relations and other foreign policy matters.
It was the first formal face-to-face meeting between members of the incoming US Administration and a UK Minister.
On November 10th, Boris Johnson is due to travel to Washington where he will meet senior Republicans from Congress for more foreign policy discussions with Mr Trump’s closest allies.
Mr Johnson’s visit comes hours after Mr Trump tweeted he is “very much” looking forward to meeting Theresa May in the spring.
