British PM May appoints Jeremy Hunt new foreign minister

LONDON, July 9 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May appointed Jeremy Hunt as foreign minister on Monday after predecessor Boris Johnson resigned in protest at the government’s plans for a close trading relationship with the European Union.

“The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs,” May’s office said in a statement. (Reporting by Alistair Smout; editing by Andrew Roche)
