Stopping a pandemic like COVID-19 from ever happening again will require a concerted and coordinated international effort.

Thatโ€™s why weโ€™re investing ยฃ25 million in a @WorldBank fund to ensure the world is better prepared to defeat future pandemics.


We must end Putin's stranglehold on grain which drives up global food prices, deprives Ukraine of revenue and puts millions at risk of starvation.

We will work with partners to end Russia's grain blockade and with Ukraine to repair vital railways.


The @G7 stand united as democracies to tackle the world's biggest challenges.


Prime Minister @BorisJohnson spoke with Canadian PM @JustinTrudeau at the @G7 summit in Germany.

They agreed to advance cooperation in security and welcomed progress on the UK-Canada Free Trade Agreement.



Prime Minister @BorisJohnson spoke with President @EmmanuelMacron at the @G7 summit in Germany.

Sanctions update:

New Russian gold will no longer be allowed to be exported to the UK, US, Japan and Canada โ€“ targeting Putinโ€™s war machine.

UK import restrictions now apply to over ยฃ13.5 billion of Russian exports.

The UK stands ready to guarantee a further ยฃ429 million of financial support for Ukraine.

This brings the total amount of UK loan guarantees to ยฃ1.3 billion โ€“ part of ยฃ1.5 billion of UK humanitarian support to Ukraine this year.


Ukraine can win and it will win.

But they need our backing to do so. Now is not the time to give up on Ukraine.

The UK will continue to back Ukraine every step of the way.

Weโ€™re investing millions into new programmes to get girls around the world back into school and access to at least 12 years of quality education.

The UK is playing its part to address this deadly global crisis with a package of funding to support countries across the Commonwealth.

The Prime Minister visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial today to pay his respects to those killed in the horrific atrocities in 1994.

Weโ€™re turbocharging trade with the fast-growing economies of the Commonwealth.

By striking free trade agreements and liberalising tariffs, we are powering growth & prosperity, creating jobs and easing the pressures we all face on the cost of living โ€“ benefitting all our people.

The UK Government is helping to power Africaโ€™s Green Industrial Revolution.

Weโ€™re supporting sustainable green infrastructure across the Commonwealth and opening new opportunities for Britainโ€™s leading clean tech companies to grow their business around the world.

We must do everything we can to ensure that human hearts never again are allowed to breed such hatred.

It was an honour to visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial.

The trade advantage with the Commonwealth is crucially important for the UK.

Growing markets for British exports creates jobs at home and eases the cost of living.

By boosting free and fair trade, we are creating prosperity across the Commonwealth.

We must take defined, coordinated action for the prosperity and security of all our peoples.

Over the next week I'll be meeting leaders at the @G7, @NATO and @CHOGM2022 to urge unity in the face of global challenges.
