The United States needs to pay attention to the “precious” relationship with Britain, said the state Secretary Rex Tillerson Monday – a few days after the US President Donald trump canceled a scheduled visit to London, citing dissatisfaction with the sale of a building of the U.S. Embassy in Velikobritanii.

The cancellation of the visit trump called in the UK questions about the relationship between Washington and its traditionally closest ally in Europe.

Tillerson met with the Prime Minister of great Britain Teresa may in her residence in Downing street, and then held talks with British foreign Minister Boris Johnson.

“We value these relationships and appreciate a personal relationship with Boris and that work across a range of issues that we are together,” Tillerson told reporters.

“Sometimes we forget the importance of their relations, he added. – We need to pay attention to this relationship and the importance of these relations on a bilateral basis”.
