LONDON (Reuters) - British Foreign minister Dominic Raab will travel to Washington to meet U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday, after meeting his French and German counterparts earlier in the week, to discuss the U.S. killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has yet to comment on the killing of Iran’s top military commander, will also talk to political leaders over the next two days, a spokeswoman said.

The prime minister is likely to talk to U.S. President Donald Trump, Germany’s Angela Merkel and France’s Emmanuel Macron, the spokeswoman said.
