Mr Hunt was the longest-serving Health Secretary in British political history, having been appointed to the post in 2012.

Speaking tonight, Mr Hunt said he would be supporting Mrs May in her efforts to secure a Brexit deal with Brussels.

May's office said in a terse statement that the prime minister had accepted Johnson's resignation and would name a replacement soon.

But as Foreign Secretary in May's government, he was prone to gaffes and criticized for not being on top of his brief.

Tuesday's meeting comes after Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis quit, saying May's plans for future relations with the European Union don't live up to their idea of Brexit.

May met with Conservative lawmakers in a packed room at Parliament, in a bid to calm the feverish atmosphere in the deeply divided party.

Besides their senior colleagues, Brexit junior minister Steve Baker and two ministerial aides also resigned from the government on Sunday.

Geoffrey Cox has replaced Jeremy Wright as Attorney General.

Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May has sought to curb the growing turmoil around her leadership with the appointment of United Kingdom health secretary Jeremy Hunt as the new foreign secretary to replace Boris Johnson.

He said: "My principal job is to stand four square behind the Prime Minister so that we can get through an agreement with the European Union based on what was agreed by the Cabinet last week at Chequers".

"It seems to me we're giving too much away, too easily, and that's a unsafe strategy at this time", Davis said in a BBC radio interview Monday morning.

"It is as though we are sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them", Johnson wrote in a letter that underscored his credentials as a champion of full-speed Brexit.

If Davis's resignation rattled May, Johnson's shook the foundations of her government.

She said she and the two departed ministers "do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honoring the result of the referendum" in which United Kingdom voters opted to leave the EU.
