British Ambassador on Russia, U.S. Relations, and Brexit

This year, the U.K. has been caught in a flurry of diplomatic rows with several countries. In May, the U.K. issued sanctions against Russia for poisoning two of its citizens. Also, the U.K. and E.U. issued a joint “blocking statute." It essentially blunts the impact of President Trump’s sanctions against Iran. Great Britain struggles with domestic affairs as Prime Minister Theresa May deals with potential fallout from a “no-deal” on Brexit negotiations with the EU. The repercussions could be harsh for Northern Ireland and Scotland. British Deputy Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Tatham, joins Worldview to discuss Russia, NATO, Brexit, US-UK trade, and more.
