Iran 'Clearly in Default of Expectations' of Nuclear Deal - Tillerson

Johnson meets American counterpart

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson today vowed that Donald Trump's America would be a "steadfast ally" to Britain during Brexit.

The U.S. State Department said Tillerson would discuss issues including "the need for increased pressure to counter the threat to global security posed by [North Korea's] nuclear and missile programs".

"We will stand by our ally as Brexit continues to take shape".

Johnson meets American counterpart

He is now in London for talks with Johnson and Theresa May, covering a wide range of issues including Hurricane Irma, the North Korean crisis and the situation in Libya. All of us set down our own concerns and said "what can we do to help each others" citizens' and we're very thankful for that.

"We're also committed to take that same spirit into the aftermath and how can we work together and co-ordinate now to complete the recovery and begin the long, long process of reconstruction in a way that is beneficial to everyone".

Tillerson says it was going to be "very difficult" to get China to agree to an oil embargo.


The two discussed North Korea's "destabilizing activities" and the importance of the global community coming together to put pressure on Pyongyang, May's spokesman said.

This morning's talks focused on the global threat from North Korea and Iran acquiring nuclear weapons.

Trump is weighing a strategy that could allow more aggressive USA responses to Iran's forces, its Shi'ite Muslim proxies in Iraq and Syria, and its support for militant groups.


"I've seen first-hand the devastation Hurricane Irma has caused people in the Caribbean", Johnson said ahead of the talks.

The US secretary of state said it would be up to China alone to decide "to use the very powerful tool of oil supply to pressure North Korea" into reconsidering its approach to dialogue.

The Foreign Secretary will also chair a meeting on the situation in Libya with Mr Tillerson, and the French political director, as well as the Italian and Egyptian foreign ministers, and representatives from the UN and United Arab Emirates.
