Foreign Minister Boris Johnson has called Donald Trump a "deal-maker", saying "there is a lot to be positive about" with the results of the US election and suggesting there is "opportunity" in the radical changes.
"It's very important not to pre-judge the president-elect or his administration. It's only been a few days since he's been elected," he said to reporters ahead of the Foreign Affairs Council.
He added: "Donald Trump is a deal-maker and I think that could be a good thing for Britain but it could also be a good thing for Europe."
Asked about the threat of Donald Trump forcing America out of Nato, he said: "I personally think it's a good thing if other European countries do shoulder more of the responsibilities and spend a bit more on defence."
He added that foreign ministers in Europe at the meeting will be discussing Yemen, Lebanon, and Turkey, saying "Turkey remains a matter of some concern" and that leaders "should not push Turkey into a corner".
Boris Johnson has urged his European colleagues to stop their "collective whinge-o-rama" about the election victory of Donald Trump.Read the full story ›
