Theresa May has spoken to Donald Trump about North Korea – but did not raise the US President’s attack on the NHS.
The two leaders “agreed all responsible nations must increase pressure on North Korea until it turns to the path of denuclearization”, the White House said.
They also talked about a new US law allowing American authorities to access data held overseas in order to tackle crime and terrorism.
But they did not discuss Mr Trump’s Twitter outburst against the NHS in which he described the British health system as “going broke and not working”.
Asked if the issue came up during the telephone call, Downing Street said: “It did not.”
Downing Street said Mrs May stressed the “great importance” of the new data law, which will also enable reciprocal deals to allow police in the UK to access information across the Atlantic.
