It is understood, however, that Johnson will consider resignation if Theresa May leans towards a "soft Brexit", advocated by chancellor, Philip Hammond, when she makes a key speech in Florence on Friday.

Reports suggest Johnson and Brexit-backing ministers have been squared off over her plans to offer the European Union some form of payment to break the deadlock in negotiations.

Asked whether Mr Johnson should be sacked, the Prime Minister replied: "Boris is doing good work as Foreign Secretary".

Mr Johnson and Mrs May are both in NY, but no formal meeting between the two is planned.

"The cabinet is absolutely clear about the destination we are aiming for in relation to our European negotiations".

The prominent Leave campaigner spoke to TV cameras in NY after bumping into them at a hotel lift as he returned from a jog.

"No. of course not, we're going to deliver a fantastic Brexit", he said.

The Foreign Secretary is understood to accept the idea of the United Kingdom paying its dues to Brussels during a transition period - but not for continued payments for access to the European single market on a permanent basis.

Expressing his belief that her remarks would unite the Conservative party, Johnson said: "I am confident she will set out an exciting and positive vision for Brexit and it will be a speech around which everyone can unite".

May's spokesman also underlined the fact that May plans to use Friday's speech to discuss not just transitional arrangements, but Britain's ongoing partnership with the rest of the EU.

Downing Street has been tight-lipped about Mrs May's speech, seen as the most important intervention on Brexit since her Lancaster House address in January.

The Johnson affair, has drawn flak from some Cabinet colleagues with one accusing the foreign secretary of an unhelpful move that placed "personal ambition ahead before the interests of the country".

The foreign secretary did not name fellow Telegraph scribe Nelson as the man who grabbed his attention with a piece titled: "There are three theories why Boris Johnson is lying low, and none is flattering".

Even though Mr Johnson tried to draw the sting out of the controversy by claiming "we are a nest of singing birds", such a vainglorious Brexiteer must have known that his provocative article in the Daily Telegraph would create the impression that he's on political manoeuvres of his own.
