Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson leaves his home in London

British Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed Jeremy Hunt as the new Foreign Secretary, following Boris Johnson's resignation from the job amid deep divisions over Britain's departure from the European Union (EU) or Brexit.

A rebellion by Eurosceptic backbenchers could wipe out Mrs May's majority when the bill returns to the House of Commons on Monday, in what would be the first significant test of strength for her Brexit critics.

The slew of resignations could possibly point to members of Parliament demanding a vote of no confidence in May, even though her team is confident that their Brexit plan would pass if it gets put to a vote. The cold realities of business opportunities, and not historic nostalgia, will decide India's future engagements with the UK.

Prime Minister Theresa May has insisted that the deal she forged at Chequers last week "delivers on the vote that people gave on Brexit" in the 2016 referendum.

The resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson - who said they could not support Mrs May's proposed trading relationship with the European Union - have piled pressure on the PM and prompted speculation about a leadership challenge.

Erdogan, the AK Party and MHP candidate, won the June 24 presidential election with 52.5 percent of the vote. No major Western leader featured on a list of 50 presidents, prime ministers and other high-ranking guests.

"The general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position and possibly an inescapable one", he said in his letter.

"London's course in relations with Russia is that aggressive and inertial, that one can hardly expect that one resignation, even of a foreign minister, can turn it other way", former Russian Ambassador in the United States and now a senator, Sergey Kislyak said.

When asked directly if Trump would meet Johnson, U.S. Ambassador in London Woody Johnson told BBC Radio: "I'm not sure". "[It] absolutely keeps faith with the vote of the British people", she said after a meeting with fellow European leaders focused on the Western Balkan states.

A Brexit supporter, his most high-profile appointment was that of housing minister, a position he has only held since January 2018.

As May attempts to unify her party behind her proposals, commentators said Trump meeting Johnson would suggest backing for his view that May's plans would inhibit Britain's ability to forge new free trade deals.

Now, the council has come up with another major decision of allowing students above 25 years of age to apply for NEET 2018 . However, Supreme Court had passed a judgment that students above 25 would be allowed to appear for this examination.

Other amendments would force Britain to have a separate Value-Added Tax regime from the EU and ensure the Prime Minister has to table primary legislation if she wishes to keep Britain in the customs union.

The resignation of Davis, with a stinging warning that Britain was "giving too much away too easily" in Brexit talks, was a blow to May just days after she declared a truce among her warring ministers.

The government has announced that Kit Malthouse has become the new housing minister and replaces Dominic Raab, who had only been in the post for seven months. "That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, said there had been "blunder after blunder" by May.

Raab will now take over negotiations with the EU's Michel Barnier, but what stance will he take?
