UK Seeking Closer Ties With US

U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson met with some of Donald Trump’s top advisers as Britain looks to build ties with the incoming administration ahead of the country’s withdrawal from the European Union.

The sessions involved Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and the president-elect’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, on Sunday evening before Johnson traveled to Washington to visit with congressional leaders.

The talks were “positive and frank” and covered relations with Syria, Russia and China, the BBC reported, citing unidentified aides.
