Boris Johnson’s girlfriend, Carrie Symonds, has been barred from visiting the US. She had applied for permission to go to the US as part of her job with environmental group Oceana but the request was blocked, the Daily Mail reported. The situation could prove embarrassing for the Prime Minister, who is expected to meet US President Donald Trump at the G7 summit in France which begins on Saturday. The problem with Ms Symonds’ travel plans could be linked to a trip to Somaliland last year. The US does not recognise Somaliland as an independent country, instead viewing it as part of Somalia.
