Tillerson says U.S. discussing Syria security zone

Tillerson says U.S. discussing Syria security zone

He also clashed with Theresa May after retweeting a far-right group's videos. The deal has been cast into doubt by Trump, but Britain, along with France and Germany, wants to keep it.

Tehran has ruled out any changes in the agreement, while the other signatories - Britain, France, Germany, China, and Russian Federation - have closed ranks in support of the accord.

Mr Johnson said there was a "wide measure of agreement" on the European side on the need to work collectively to constrain Iranian ballistic missile activity.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the United States is discussing with Turkey and others the possibility of setting up a security zone on the Syria border to address Turkey's concerns about a Kurdish enclave there.

Mr Johnson said that Britain was committed to doing what it could with its partners but said it was important not to fundamentally affect the main deal that is backed by Britain and the European Union.

"We think we can do that".

Tillerson's mini-tour of Europe will continue with a visit to Paris on Tuesday, where he will also be joined by Johnson.

"The Foreign Secretary emphasised that the Iran nuclear deal is working, and that the United Kingdom would work closely with US, European and global partners to tackle Iran's disruptive behaviour in the region", a Foreign Office spokesperson said.

But Mourinho, who has been linked with a move for Tottenham's Danny Rose, says the England global is in such good form that there are few better in his position.

Tillerson was greeted by U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson as workers finished planting shrubs in the grounds of the new embassy.

Iran and six world powers agreed the nuclear deal in 2015 to curb its nuclear weapons ambitions in exchange for relief from worldwide sanctions.

Iran has rejected any renegotiation. Britain, France and Germany have expressed some willingness to work with the U.S.to prevent the deal from collapsing.

"We are concerned about the Turkish incident in Northern Syria", Tillerson said while on a trip to London, according to a pool report supplied to Reuters.

The new embassy became a point of strain in U.S.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson today insisted the "special relationship" was still "treasured" in Washington after he took 's place on a visit to.

Mr Trump said he had cancelled a visit to the UK In February because he was not a "big fan" of the new embassy - which is moving from Mayfair to south London - and had refused to "cut the ribbon". His explanation was met by skepticism from many who noted Trump's possible visit was a source of controversy in Britain with some politicians saying he was not welcome and should not come.

While Trump blamed the Obama administration, the move to relocate the embassy to Nine Elms dated back to 2008, when then-President George W. Bush's State Department announced it had purchased the property. A planned meeting with embassy staffers was cancelled due to the shutdown. The new embassy, in the former industrial area of Nine Elms on the south side of the River Thames, opened its doors on January 16 but is still not 100 percent operational and will not be ready for a grand opening while Tillerson is in London, the official said.
