Boris Johnson cancels meeting with Putin

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has recently called off a meeting with Vladimir Putin on 4/10/17 due to the current events in Syria. This meeting would have been the first in five years due to strained British relations with Russia over the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko via radiation poisoning in London, the annexation of Crimea, and the Ukraine Crisis. Mr. Johnson had addressed the issue with U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, and will continue the conversation during the G7 summit, where he hopes to have a unifying message against Putin.
