1. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and US Secretary of State John Kerry at news conference
2. SOUNDBITE (English) John Kerry, US Secretary of State:
Kerry: "Our ambassador to the EU in Brussels, who I just spent the evening with the other night, had the privilege of going to Oxford (university) with Boris Johnson, and in fact Boris Johnson got him to come into the Oxford Union of which Boris was president and he talked to me about some great experiences that they had together there, and he told me that this man is a very smart and capable man. That's the Boris Johnson…"
Johnson: "I can live with that." (++laughter++)
Kerry: "That's the Boris Johnson that I intend to work with and we intend to make good things happen."
Johnson: "Fantastic. It's going well John, thank you very much. I think we got through that one alright." (++laughter++) "Thank you very much Secretary of State."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, British Foreign Secretary: (++on previous remarks he has made about world leaders that have been deemed as offensive++)
"I'm afraid that there is such a rich thesaurus now of things that I've said that have been, one way or another, through what alchemy I do not know, somehow misconstrued, that it would really take me too long to engage in a full, global itinerary of apologies to all concerned. I think most people who read these things in their proper context can see exactly what was intended and indeed I find that virtually everybody I've met so far in this job understands that very well particularly on the international scene. And we have some very serious issues before us today."

5 . SOUNDBITE (English) John Kerry, US Secretary of State: (++on Kerry and President Obama's clear preference for the UK to vote to remain in the EU++)
"The people of Britain voted (to leave the EU). This is a democracy, we all respect democracy. Yes, it is a fact President Obama and I both said we thought that we would be better off with a continuation of the UK's membership within the EU and that's a well-known fact, but that's not the way the people of this country voted. And we respect democracy, all of us. Therefore, it is our job to implement in the best way possible what people voted for and to try to guarantee that the response is going to meet their standard. Not ours. That's the ultimate arbiter of this."
US Secretary of State John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Tuesday faced questions about their new working relationship.
Boris Johnson, who was appointed to his new role last week, has faced a backlash over comments he made previously about US President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton.
Kerry's visit to the UK comes after he and Obama argued strongly for the UK to remain in the European Union, but Britons opted to leave.
