Boris Johnson has admitted a report of his reviews about Kim Darroch was a “factor” in his resignation as Britain’s ambassador to the United States.

Having said that, the Tory leadership frontrunner denied failing to give Mr Darroch his backing and said his terms throughout a televised leadership debate had been “misrepresented”.

Mr Johnson’s lack of explicit assistance for Mr Darroch all through the ITV debate on Tuesday was greatly noticed to have been the closing straw for the envoy pursuing the leak of his diplomatic cables criticising Donald Trump’s White Residence.

Furious Tory MPs accused the former foreign secretary, who is favourite to succeed Theresa Could, of throwing Mr Darroch “under a bus”, leaving him no possibility but to resign.

But in an job interview with the BBC’s Andrew Neil, Mr Johnson mentioned when he spoke to Mr Darroch by phone the ambassador advised him he had not witnessed the discussion himself whilst any person experienced explained to him about Mr Johnson’s feedback.

“He claimed that what any individual had relayed to him experienced been a element in his resignation,” Mr Johnson explained.

He included: “I think that sad to say what I explained on that Tv set debate was misrepresented to Kim.”
