Random Pagan Verse:
It is best for man to be middle-wise,
Not over cunning and clever:
The learned man whose lore is deep
Is seldom happy at heart.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson have pledged to work closely together as NATO allies to address challenges and meet responsibilities around the world, according to the State Department.

In their first telephone conversation, Kerry offered his congratulations to newly appointed Johnson in the top British diplomatic post.

The two agreed the U.S. - British special relationship is as essential as ever in face of the present dynamic of world affairs.

Kerry stressed U.S. support for a sensible and measured approach to the Brexit process and offered to stay engaged as Britain's government develops its plans, a statement said.

They also touched upon the situation in Syria, the broader Middle East and agreed to meet at next week's Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels.

Speaking Thursday in London, Johnson also pledged to reshape Britain's global profile.  Addressing the Brexit referendum to leave the European Union, he said that it ďdoes not mean in any sense leaving Europe,Ē adding that ďthere is a massive difference between leaving the EU and our relations with Europe, which if anything I think will intensify and be built up at an inter-governmental level.Ē
