ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in the United Kingdom on Wednesday evening (September 13), ahead of talks with his British counterpart Boris Johnson. The British foreign office said the meeting on Thursday would focus on issues including Hurricane Irma, North Korea and Libya. Johnson, who this week visited the British territories of Anguilla and the British Virgin islands to see the devastation caused by Irma, will discuss the international response with Tillerson and French Political Director Nicolas de Riviere. "I've seen firsthand the devastation Hurricane Irma has caused people in the Caribbean. Close coordination with our allies is vital for both the short-term and long-term recovery efforts," Johnson said in a statement ahead of the meeting. The three will also discuss the situation in North Korea, which carried out its sixth and largest nuclear test earlier this month.
