Mike Pompeo the US Secretary of State has arrived in the UK ahead of meetings between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.
During the Downing Street summit on Tuesday, it is expected that China will be high up on the agenda with Raab and Johnson.
Pompeo tweeted, “Great to be back in London to reaffirm the special relationship we share with our closest ally.
“Looking forward to meeting with Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab as we tackle our most pressing global issues in combating Covid-19 and addressing our shared security challenges.”
Following Monday’s announcement over the suspension of the extradition treaty with Hong Kong, it is expected that the US will also follow this path, as Washington has been critical of the new security laws imposed on the territory.
