On Monday, the British Prime Minister Theresa May-led Government has shown its “full support” for its ambassador to the United States, after the US President declared that he would no longer deal with him.   

Sir Kim Darroch continues to have the Prime Minister’s full support,” informs a spokesman.

President Trump has replied to the leak of diplomatic cables, in which the ambassador has described the President of the United States as an “inept” and the White House as “uniquely dysfunctional”.

President Trump in a number of Twitter posts has hit out at Mr. Darroch and at PM Theresa May, claims she had created a “mess” over the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union.

Replying to the British Government spokesperson said, “We have made clear to the US how unfortunate this leak is.”

“The selective extracts leaked do not reflect the closeness of, and the esteem in which we hold, the relationship”, adding that “at the same time we have also underlined the importance of ambassadors being able to provide honest, unvarnished assessments of the politics in their country.”

He further said that “the UK has a special and enduring relationship with the US based on our long history and commitment to shared values and that will continue to be the case.”
