Tillerson tours US Embassy in London criticized by Trump

Tillerson tours US Embassy in London criticized by Trump

In Warsaw, Trump will reaffirm US commitment to Poland's security in meetings with the president, prime minister and foreign minister.

Speaking alongside him, United Kingdom foreign secretary Boris Johnson said there was a "wide measure of agreement" in Europe on the need to work together with the U.S. to address Iran's ballistic missile activity. "This is a fully wrong policy and will certainly have a reverse outcome and we have clearly said this to Europe too".

A USA withdrawal probably would scrap the agreement, a chief foreign policy achievement for President Barack Obama, by reimposing a broad range of sanctions that isolate Iran from the worldwide financial system.

Tillerson was greeted by U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson as workmen finished planting shrubs in the grounds of the new embassy.

Both Tillerson and Johnson said they would examine Iran's ballistic missile program, which was not part of the 2015 accord. "We think we can do that together", he said.

Downing Street has insisted that May's invitation to the president to visit Britain still stands and he would be welcome. "We need to pay attention to that relationship and the importance of this relationship on a bilateral basis as well". No date has been set, however, amid concerns from the White House about the level of protests against Trump. "I treasure Boris' relationship with me personally", he said.

"We spend a lot of time talking about the world's problems", he said.

Trump's cancellation of his trip has raised questions in Britain over the links between Washington and its closest traditional ally in Europe - widely called the "special relationship".

"We recognize and fully appreciate Turkey's legitimate right to protect its own citizens from terrorist elements", he said.

Mrs May is expected to meet Mr Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week.

May and Tillerson discussed "continuing depth and breadth" of the special relationship, May's office said.

"Some of them [European signatories of the nuclear deal] think that if they make concessions to Trump on issues other than the nuclear deal, they can make him remain committed to the nuclear deal", Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister and chief nuclear envoy Abbas Araqchi said.
