We speak to Counselor Derek Chollet, a senior policy advisor at the State Department who works closely with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

He is set to travel to the UK tomorrow for meetings with government officials to discuss ongoing co-operation on a range of security and defence issues,
