London (September 14, 2017): British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will meet with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in London this week to discuss issues including Hurricane Irma, North Korea and Libya, his office says.
Johnson, who this week visited the British territories of Anguilla and the British Virgin islands to see the devastation caused by Irma, will discuss the international response with Tillerson and French Political Director Nicolas de Riviere.
The three will also discuss the situation in North Korea, which carried out its sixth and largest nuclear test earlier this month.
The UN Security Council voted unanimously to boost sanctions on North Korea on Monday, but US President Donald Trump has said they were a small step and nothing compared to what would have to happen to deal with the country’s nuclear program.
Johnson will also host a meeting on Libya, attended by Tillerson and other international representatives including Italian Foreign Minister Angelion Alfano, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and UN Libya envoy Ghassan Salame.
