May is will deliver a high profile speech on Brexit in Florence on Friday.

Meanwhile, Ms May said she was confident of achieving a consensus, saying: "Yes, the Cabinet is absolutely clear about the destination we are aiming for in relation to our European negotiations".

Some British media said May was expected to hold a one-to-one meeting with Johnson in NY, before her much-anticipated speech on Brexit in Florence on Friday.

That will come at a one-off cabinet meeting 24 hours earlier, giving Mr Johnson - and other Brexit rebels - a platform to try to water down concessions to Brussels.

Senior members of the UK's ruling Conservative Party have urged Prime Minister Theresa May to reunite her divided government before Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn takes over her position.

At the same time, Johnson was reported as telling Sky News that he was not going to resign, and that the cabinet was a "nest of singing birds".

Mr Johnson sparked controversy by writing a 4,000-word article for the Daily Telegraph reviving his claim that leaving the European Union will save Britain around £350m a week, most of which could go the NHS.

But the UK Statistics Authority has said this was not the case, and that Norgrove "has not changed the conclusion set out in his letter to the foreign secretary".

May and Johnson are both in NY for a meeting of the United Nations.
