Newscast Media WASHINGTONDespite tensions between the US president and London's mayor, the UK foreign secretary has sanctioned the state visit. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson confirmed on Tuesday that an official visit by US President Donald Trump will go forward despite an ongoing feud between London Mayor Sadiq Khan and the Donald concerning Saturday's terrorist attack.

On Monday, Khan, the first Muslim to be elected mayor of London, called on the British government to cancel Trump's visit, saying "His policies go against everything we stand for." But Johnson noted that he did not want to enter the dispute between the two political leaders.

"The invitation has been issued and accepted and I see no reason to change that. But, as far as what Sadiq Khan has said about the reassurances that he's offered the people of London, I think he was entirely right to speak in the way he did," Johnson said in a BBC radio interview.

The foreign secretary and former London mayor added that he had once "been there," an apparent allusion to his 2015 rebuke of Trump's claims that there were areas in London where police were "afraid for their lives" to enter due to large Muslim communities.

"The only reason I wouldn't go to some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump," Johnson said at the time.

The dispute between Trump and Khan re-emerged on Sunday in the wake of a terrorist attack in central London.   Add Comments>>
