CRUNCH TALKS: Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo (left) and Boris Johnson (right)

FABIAN Picardo has met up with Tory beasts Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt for crunch talks on Iran and Brexit.

The Rock’s Chief Minister jetted into London for two separate meetings with the Conservative Party leadership candidates, vying to succeed Theresa May as UK PM.

Picardo discussed the UK and Gibraltar’s withdrawal from the EU with Johnson, just weeks after he pledged to fight a ‘no-deal Brexit’, should the former Foreign Secretary come to power.

Current Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt spoke to Picardo about the diplomatic situation surrounding Iran, after British Royal Marines detained the country’s Grace 1 oil tanker.

After the talks with the leadership hopefuls, Picardo said he ‘wished both candidates all the best for next week’.

The visit came just hours after the Chief Minister met with outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May inside 10 Downing Street.

Results of the Tory leadership election are expected to be announced on Tuesday.
