Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was appointed a new foreign secretary after Boris Johnson resigned, accusing Theresa May of pursuing ‘soft Brexit’. This was reported by BBC agency.

Theresa May has launched a reshuffle of her top team after a string of resignations over her Brexit strategy plunged her government into crisis.

His departure followed that of Brexit Secretary David Davis and several junior figures.

The UK is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019, but the two sides have yet to agree how the trade will work between the UK and the EU afterwards.

As it was reported earlier, the Foreign Minister of United Kingdom Boris Johnson filed for resignation. He became the third minister in 24 hours to walk out of the government rather than back Theresa May’s plans for a soft Brexit.

The prime minister hammered out a compromise with her deeply divided cabinet in an all-day meeting at Chequers on Friday, but after consulting friends and allies, Johnson decided he could not promote the deal.
