British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson risked a fresh Brexit row Friday after being secretly recorded predicting a "meltdown" in the ongoing negotiations, accusing some in the government of blocking the process and implying U.S. President Donald Trump might handle it better. In the latest indiscreet remarks from Britain's free-wheeling top diplomat, he also revealed talks with the United States over North Korea and plans to counter Russian aggression, and mused about relations with China.Prime Minister Theresa May's spokeswoman refused to comment on the remarks, revealed by BuzzFeed News, but insisted she still had confidence in her foreign minister.In Brussels, the EU's chief negotiator on Brexit Michel Barnier said Johnson's contributions were "always very stimulating".The threat is caused by the aggressive policies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Johnson said.
