He added that it is "at the core of the dispute between our countries".

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on US and global relations, Brexit, and Boris Johnson.

Britain has been giving United Kingdom -flagged vessels a naval escort since Iran's Revolutionary Guard seized a British oil tanker last month.

He wrote: "I wish to urge you to carefully consider a possible basic contradiction within the EU-UK Withdrawal Treaty which has so far prevented a majority of British MPs approving it in its present form".

Complicating matters is the uncertainty over whether Mr. Johnson will be able to negotiate a modified, orderly divorce agreement with the European Union or crash out of the bloc with a "no-deal Brexit", which holds huge uncertainties for British business and economic policy.

"We support the United Kingdom's sovereign choice however Brexit ultimately shakes out", Mr. Pompeo said during a press conference with Mr. Raab.

Goods trade between Ireland and the United Kingdom totaled 36 billion euros past year, representing 15 percent of all Irish exports and imports.

"Because of events in recent weeks, the prospect of a no-deal Brexit is a risk that is growing".

Johnson has cultivated stronger ties to President Trump than his predecessor Theresa May.

Top US exports are financial services and aircraft, while British exports include cars and tourism.

A day after an unscheduled personal meeting with President Trump, visiting British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab got a clear sign that the U.S.is ready to cut a free trade deal once London is free of the European Union.

"We appreciate the president's warmth and enthusiasm for the UK-US relationship", Raab said in a statement after their White House meeting.

Raab said he "looked forward to working with our American friends to reach a free trade deal".

"The US is our biggest trading partner and we have more than US$1 trillion (S$1.38 trillion) invested in each other's economies".

"They are simply saying "No, we don't want to talk".

Ms Truss was due for talks on Tuesday with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross later in the week, US officials said.

"Having already laid the groundwork, we are fast-tracking this deal so that businesses are able to take advantage of the golden opportunity to increase trade with the United States as soon as possible", she added.
