An enormous welcome to Sweden and Finland, our good friends and allies on joining us in @NATO.

Together we will stand united against tyranny, and you strengthen our alliance and shared security.

This means:
- units assigned and deployed
- equipment prepositioned
- enablers in place
- command and control structures established
- defence plans upgraded. 3/5

Wonderful to attend a celebration of the @AllertonProject in Parliament earlier this week - such an incredible and informative project that has shaped farming across our country from Loddington

As the G7 meets, they must recognise that we need to arm Ukraine fully, now as they fight for us all

We must end the continual drip feed of just enough weapons systems, it is like treating an infection with antibiotics w/out the right dosage: the virus can become more resilient

We now have an agreement that paves the way for #Finland & #Sweden to join #NATO. I thank Presidents @RTErdogan & @Niinisto & @SwedishPM for the constructive spirit that made this historic decision possible.

Good to catch up with ⁦@aliciakearns⁩ who chairs ⁦@APPGKurdistan⁩ for which I’m Secretary, to discuss how to further build bilateral links with & support for #KurdistanRegion. Much done, more to do. ⁦@SafeenDizayee⁩ ⁦@karwanTahir⁩ ⁦

Congratulations to Sir Laurence Howard who today was awarded the freedom of the county of Rutland by @rutlandcouncil It was wonderful to see his contribution to the county acknowledged with this honour together with a recognition of the support given by Lady Howard.

Last week @CommonsForeign met w/the White House, @antonioguterres, @KarenPierceUK, @BWoodward_UN, diplomats, congressmen, US Treasury & global businesses to discuss getting grain & fertiliser blockaded by Russia out of Ukraine, shared global priorities & tackling illicit finance

The coveted Kremlin-backed secessionist endorsement: “For the first time in history, Serbs are waiting for time…We must be patient…Europe is inevitably confused with its internal problems. I pray to God that Donald Trump comes to power in America again.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/bosnian-serb-leader-prays-for-trumps-return-praises-putin/2022/06/26/01b36a14-f589-11ec-81db-ac07a394a86b_story.html

The escapee outlines "lengthy interrogations, torture such as being locked in a ‘tiger chair’ and shocked with electric prods, forced labour, and forced medical procedures such as being injected with unknown substances."

It outlines how Beijing is "rounding up Uyghurs" from outside China, "including ICC member States such as neighbouring Tajikistan, and forcefully deporting them back to China."

Well said, @aliciakearns
