GETTYRex Tillerson leaves Downing Street
The meeting between the pair at Number 10 lasted around 45 minutes and was described as "very good" by Mr Tillerson.
The US secretary of state is said to meet Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson later today for top level international talks to discuss issues ranging from the response to Hurricane Irma to North Korea's nuclear programme.
Fresh from a visit to British overseas territories that were hit by the natural disaster, Mr Johnson is holding talks with Mr Tillerson and French political director Nicolas de Riviere about the aftermath of the hurricane.
In separate talks, the trio will discuss fresh ways to respond to North Korea's latest nuclear test after the UN security council approved new sanctions against Pyongyang.Related articles
