The picture says everything. For a few seconds, Boris Johnson’s emotions overwhelm him as he is told the details of the Westminster terror attack. He is in Washington right now, attending vital discussions with Trump top aides, including Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner.Part of the reason for the Foreign Secretary’s visit is to share ideas to defeat Daesh and other terrorist groups. He was just about to take the centre spot in the group photo of world leaders, when an aide broke the news.
The Aussie FM, his opposite number, Julie Bishop, is looking at his blank spot in puzzlement.
Boris will also update the Americans on developments in the Middle East. He will then address a meeting of the UN.
