Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson meets with UN chief Guterres

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson met with United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres at the United Nations in New York on March 23.

Johnson chaired morning and afternoon Security Council meetings on North Korea, Somalia, and South Sudan. The United Kingdom holds the presidency of the Security Council for March.

Earlier on March 23, Johnson told reporters that the attack near parliament in London was an attack on the world, but that he believed the world could turn a “tide of hate” and Britain would share information of emerging threats with partners.

He also said that internet providers and social media companies have “got to look at the stuff that’s going up on their sites, they’ve got to take steps to invigilate it, to take it down where they can.”
