UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is undertaking a visit to the United States for meetings with US President-elect Donald Trump's team, Sputnik reported.

Johnson has arrived in New York to meet key members of Trump's aides.

"Following the successful meeting last month between the prime minister’s chiefs of staff and president-elect Donald Trump’s team, Boris Johnson is undertaking a short visit to the US for meetings with close advisers to the president-elect and senior congressional leaders," a Foreign Office spokesman said late Sunday.

Johnson is expected to meet Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his chief strategist Steve Bannon. The discussions would be focused on UK-US relations, as well as other foreign policy matters.
