President Donald Trump wants to see a successful British exit from the European Union which Washington will support with a US-UK free trade agreement, National Security Advisor John Bolton told British officials on Monday.

President Trump's national security advisor John Bolton has been meeting Boris Johnson and other key government figures at the start of a two day trip to London, with hopes of a post Brexit trade deal with the USA high on Britain's agenda.

Bolton, in London for two days of talks, is seeking an improved U.S.

Trump had wanted to work with the May government on a trade deal but her government "didn't want to do it".

Johnson wants the European Union to renegotiate the terms of Britain's exit ahead of an October 31 departure date, but the European Union says it will not alter the part of the deal Johnson says must be changed.

Told UK officials he was happy to continue discussion with British technical experts on Huawei.

Mr Bolton also said issues like security in Iran, and fears over Huawei's involvement in the UK's 5G network could wait until after Brexit to be resolved.

None of his meetings have been on camera but in a briefing that was dominated by Brexit, he said "we are with you".

Mr Bolton is the most senior member of the U.S. administration to visit the United Kingdom since Mr Johnson took over at Number 10.

British marines seized an Iranian vessel, which is suspected of smuggling oil to Syria, off the coast of Gibraltar on July 4. He signed an executive order in May banning USA companies from using Huawei equipment and later lifted the ban after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, agreeing to a trade ceasefire at the G-20 summit.

The UK has committed to joining Operation Sentinel, the mission to protect maritime security in the Persian Gulf.

It comes after Mr Johnson announced a programme to create 10,000 additional prison places and said the Crown Prosecution Service would receive an extra £85m over the next two years, to help deal with a rise in violent crime in England and Wales.

"Brexit should not impact the strength of our European partnerships", said one senior British government source familiar with the activities of one spy agency, adding that most intelligence-sharing was anyway conducted outside EU institutions.
