Gordon-Hagerty and other UK and American officials to honor the cooperation between the United States and the United Kingdom on Nuclear Security and Non Proliferation.
Secretary Perry also had the opportunity to meet with international energy industry leaders and other officials, including Minister Khalid Al-Falih and Dr. Fatih Birol. On April 22nd, the Trump Administration announced that it will not renew the significant reduction exceptions (SREs) to countries who are purchasing Iranian oil.
