LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will make his first official visit to Britain on Friday in an expression of solidarity following a suicide bombing in Manchester earlier this week, the British government said.

During his visit Tillerson will meet British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in London.

"Secretary Tillerson and the Foreign Secretary will write messages of condolence for the victims of the attack and hold talks on a range of foreign policy issues," the Foreign Office said in a statement.
