  • UK Prime Minister 
Confused about #Brexit

Tillerson, made the comments during a visit to Britain to see Prime Minister Theresa May and foreign minister Boris Johnson.

"That is a very powerful tool that has been used in the past, and we hope that China will not reject that", Tillerson said.

The US on Thursday took action against 11 individuals and companies accused of supporting Iran's Revolutionary Guards or engaging in cyber attacks against US banks, imposing economic sanctions.

"(They) touched on the Iran nuclear deal, the PM underlining its importance in preventing Iran from procuring nuclear weapons", a spokesman for May said, as reported by Reuters.

In a statement issued Wednesday, over 80 prominent worldwide disarmament experts urged Trump to reconsider his possible plans to unravel Iran's 2015 nuclear agreement with six world powers, including the US.

Mr Tillerson praised the co-operation between the UK, US and France in dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean.




Tillerson said he discussed with Mrs May "the threat that Iran poses to the region through its destabilising activities in Yemen, in Syria and in other parts of the region".

The trio will also discuss fresh ways to respond to North Korea's latest nuclear test after the United Nations security council approved new sanctions against Pyongyang.

And to top it all off, this week he and International Development Secretary, Priti Patel, were told the Government's response to Hurricane Irma had been "found wanting" and many suffering the storm's devastation in United Kingdom overseas territories "are still in grave need".

"Close coordination with our allies is vital for both the short-term and long-term recovery efforts", he said.

And expect the situation in Libya to come up during talks with representatives from the U.N., Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

The meeting is meant to try and find a way to break the political deadlock in Libya and bring stability to the North African country in a bid to help deal with the issue of illegal migration.
