British foreign minister to visit Russia to discuss differences

Britain's foreign minister Boris Johnson will go to Moscow in the coming weeks to discuss the differences between the two countries over Syria and Ukraine, the Foreign Office said Saturday, in the first such visit for five years.


Britain backed sanctions against Russia in response to its annexation of Crimea in 2014, and the countries have clashed on other issues, including Russia's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the civil war in his country.

However, Johnson has accepted the invitation from counterpart Sergei Lavrov and the British government said that it was "clear that the U.K. will engage with Russia where it is in our national interest to do so".
