LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson consulted with President Donald Trump late on Tuesday, and stated in reaction to a question on why he was preventing being photographed with the U.S. leader that he would be photographed with all NATO leaders later on.

Johnson, who is campaigning prior to a basic election on Dec. 12, had asked Trump not to intervene in the campaign. The British media have recommended Johnson is attempting to prevent being seen with Trump, who is out of favor in Britain.

” We had a great conference and we went over the future of NATO, what is going on in Syria and numerous other security matters,” he informed press reporters on Wednesday.

Johnson, hosting a conference of leaders from the military alliance, also fulfilled leaders of Germany, France and Turkey on Tuesday to go over Syria, underlining he thought it was important for the U.S.-led military alliance to stick.
