xinhuanet: Visiting U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said here on Wednesday that he hopes Brexit can be resolved soon “because President Trump is eager to strike a bilateral trade agreement” with Britain.

Pompeo told a joint press conference held with British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt that the UK-U.S. special relationship is “thriving”.

The U.S. Secretary of State is in London for talks with British officials on the special relationship between the two countries amid heightened tensions with Iran and Brexit uncertainty.


He met with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Hunt during his one-day visit “to discuss shared global priorities.”

Hunt said Iran’s latest announcement that it will pull out of some of its commitments under the international nuclear deal is an “unwelcome step”.

There will be “consequences” if Iran ceases its commitments on the nuclear deal, he noted.

Pompeo arrived in London after making an unannounced visit to Iraq. He previously canceled a scheduled trip to Germany.
