Theresa May who is in her last week of office will not hold a formal one-to-one meeting President Trump during his three day UK state visit.
Senior officials and ministers will accompany the pair for “substantial talks,” Downing Street said there is nothing unusual about the arrangements for Tuesday’s talks.
May’s official Downing Street spokesman said it was “always going to be the case” that the meeting at Number 10 would involve the delegations from both sides, rather than just the leaders and there would be “substantial bilateral discussions.”
“These are always how the discussions take place with any leader,” adding “nothing unusual here.”
However, the spokesman did add they will have time for informal private talks together.
He said, “You can see the events they are at, you can see the fact she is providing him with a tour of the Churchill War Rooms, I would expect them to be having discussions with just the two of them.”
