Secretary of State Michael Pompeo met with UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt on Thursday in Washington to discuss the current global geopolitical climate, the United States’ state department reported.

The two officials particularly reviewed priorities, particularly on how to counter “Iranian malign behavior” and “next steps in the political process in Yemen”, a statement from the state department said.

Pompeo and Hunt also discussed next steps on encouraging Russia to return to full and verifiable compliance of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) which was a 1987 arms control agreement between the US and the former Soviet Union.

The two also discussed aspects of UK-US relations ahead of Britain’s exit from the European Union.
