May, Johnson dismiss speculations of rift after leaving #UNGA together

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s delegation to the UN General Assembly would be heading back to London after a few days of political adventure in New York.

There were indications that Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson would be at the receiving end of serious lash from Mrs May for dropping words that challenged the PM’s leadership and strategy on Friday just days before she prepared to deliver a speech in Florence.

Speculations grew when the duo failed to meet up during UNGA either at the residence of the UK ambassador to the US or in the corridors of the UN building. But, tensions were doused when it was announced Boris would travel back to the British capital alongside May to attend a Cabinet meeting on Thursday.

Mrs May’s spokesman, James Slack told reporters in New York: “Programs permitting, the foreign secretary is flying back with us tonight”.

Johnson was meant to host an event in Somalia on Friday, but will instead accompany May to Italy where she will deliver a speech outlining her vision for Brexit.
