LONDON, June 10 British foreign minister Boris
Johnson backed Prime Minister Theresa May and dismissed reports
that he might be planning a leadership challenge after she
failed to win a parliamentary majority for the Conservative
Party in an election.
The Sunday Times and Mail on Sunday newspapers said that
allies of Johnson were pushing him to challenge May for the
"Mail on Sunday tripe - I am backing Theresa May. Let's get
on with the job," Johnson said on Twitter on Saturday.
