Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and @Conservatives leader. Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
A huge delight to meet @SwedishPM Magdalena Andersson and President @niinisto again.
The accession of Finland and Sweden to @NATO will permanently strengthen our defensive Alliance, helping to keep us all safe.
Good discussions with President @RTErdogan. I welcome Türkiye's agreement with Sweden and Finland, paving the way for their accession to @NATO.
I'm grateful for the President's leadership on getting grain out of Ukraine – a crisis that's having global repercussions.
At this @NATO Leaders’ Summit, I’ll be urging fellow nations to continue to do everything they can to support Ukraine.
The UK has always played a historic role in the @NATO alliance, working to address the biggest global threats and build a more secure world.
The G7 stands strong together.
We're backing President Zelenskyy and Ukraine with the strategic resolve to turn the tide in this fight against Putin's barbarism.
I’m terribly saddened to hear that Dame Deborah James has died. What an inspiration she was to so many.
The awareness she brought to bowel cancer and the research her campaigning has funded will be her enduring legacy.
Because of her, many many lives will be saved.
Fantastic news as we kick off the NATO Summit.
Sweden and Finland's membership will make our brilliant alliance stronger and safer.

My thoughts are with Helen McCourt’s loved ones today.
They have still not had the closure they so deserve, but it is thanks to the campaigning and bravery of @marie_mccourt that we have Helen’s Law.
This Government is making our streets safer by ensuring those guilty of heinous crimes get the punishments they deserve and spend longer behind bars to protect the public.
Putin’s actions in Ukraine are creating terrible aftershocks, driving up energy and food prices across the world.
Global leaders need to come together to help Ukraine and make life easier for households across the world.
Nothing should be off the table.
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.
We wanted to pay a special tribute to @ZelenskyyUa as he sadly couldn’t be with us in person at the @G7 ⤵️
As the @G7 gathers in Germany, Prime Minister @BorisJohnson and I want to be very clear about our support for Ukrainians and for President @ZelenskyyUa: It is unwavering. We stand with you, and we are staying the course.
We must support Ukraine to strengthen their hand in both the war and any future negotiations.
President @EmmanuelMacron and I agreed to step up our military support for Ukraine at this critical moment, and to enhance Anglo-French cooperation on defence and security.
The @G7 stand united as democracies to tackle the world's biggest challenges.
From Ukraine to the global economy and climate change it was great to talk to @CNNSotu earlier about the shared challenges the United Kingdom and the United States face together as friends and partners.
Greetings from the municipality of Krün, where the G7 leaders are meeting, and where we will be hosting @CNNSotu featuring our US exclusive interview with UK PM @BorisJohnson.
The measures we have announced today will directly hit Russian oligarchs and strike at the heart of Putin’s war machine.
We need to starve the Putin regime of its funding. The UK and our allies are doing just that.
New Russian gold will no longer be allowed to be exported to the UK, US, Japan and Canada – targeting Putin’s war machine.
UK import restrictions now apply to over £13.5 billion of Russian exports.
The UK stands ready to guarantee a further £429 million of financial support for Ukraine.
This brings the total amount of UK loan guarantees to £1.3 billion – part of £1.5 billion of UK humanitarian support to Ukraine this year.
Now is not the time to give up on Ukraine, they need the support and resolve of the @G7 more than ever.
The UK will continue to back Ukraine every step of the way, because we know that their security is our security, and their freedom is our freedom.
It's been a fantastic few days in Kigali.
We’re working alongside our Commonwealth friends to boost trade and investment, drive forward the green industrial revolution and find solutions for the crisis in Ukraine, which will be a focus of the G7 in the coming days.
An inspiring and uplifting few days! From bolstering our trade networks to launching programmes to get girls around the world access to quality education – this is what @CHOGM2022 is about.
We should all cherish the Commonwealth.
Educating girls improves lives and transforms societies.
That is why we are committed to getting girls across the Commonwealth back into education and campaign to give every girl 12 years of quality education.
Global prosperity and stability is being threatened – with Commonwealth countries bearing the brunt of Putin’s folly in Ukraine.
Together we can bring food prices down and get the world economy back on track, as we stand up for the freedoms we all believe in.
Our unique Commonwealth family is bound by our shared values and commitment to tackle today’s global challenges together.
The Commonwealth, a family of 54 countries encompassing a third of humanity is united by an invisible thread of shared values, history and friendship.
We now pass the responsibility of Chair-in-Office to Rwanda to continue the work of the Commonwealth.
My visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial.
An unspeakable tragedy that must never be forgotten.
We’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 – benefitting all our people.
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.
Good to meet President @PaulKagame in the beautiful city of Kigali this morning.
As we hand over the Commonwealth Chair-in-Office to Rwanda, our countries will be working together closely to address the most pressing global challenges.
Labour MPs defied Keir's order to not join the RMT's picket lines. Who will defy him again today?
I’ve arrived in Rwanda for CHOGM to address global challenges, from hunger to climate change, and to turbocharge trade with some of the world’s most dynamic economies.
With our shared values, history and language – the Commonwealth is a unique and vital association.
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.
The majority of people have already come forward for their spring booster – it’s vital that everyone eligible now takes up the offer so we can carry on protecting the most vulnerable against Covid this summer.
More than four in five people have already had their COVID-19 spring booster vaccine.
If you've been invited, but haven't come forward for your spring booster, please book your jab as soon as possible. Visit http://nhs.uk/covid-booster for more information.
As part of #ArmedForcesWeek I welcomed a very special guest to Downing Street. Finley Skinner, 7, from Derby, has raised thousands of pounds for a war memorial village that houses our veterans.
Well done Finley - I hope you enjoyed your well deserved visit to Number 10👇🏼
Vote for Helen Hurford in Tiverton and Honiton tomorrow and stick up for British food and farming.
Today’s partnership with @moderna_tx puts us at the forefront of the research and technology needed to fight against future health threats, while creating more jobs.
Our investment will bring supercharged, home-grown vaccines right to our shores.
🆕 We've agreed a partnership with @moderna_tx to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing and research centre in the UK 🤝
✅ allow NHS patients access to new vaccines
✅ strengthen our response to future pandemics
✅ boost the economy
A powerful and moving story about how we don't need to face bullying alone.
Thank you for sharing Nadhim.
As many people know, I moved to this country aged 11, unable to speak a word of English.
Some of my first school experiences involved being called a ‘p*ki’ and even having my head dunked in a pond by bigger kids as entertainment.
It’s time to talk about bullying.
The strikes today are wrong and unnecessary.
Huge congratulations to @MattFitz94 on winning the @usopengolf.
You have made the city of Sheffield and indeed the whole country incredibly proud.
5 years on from this cowardly act of terrorism my thoughts are with the family of Makram Ali and those affected by the Finsbury Park Mosque attack.
Freedom of worship and tolerance for different faiths is fundamental to our values. Terrorists will never change our way of life.
This Sunday marks five years since the Finsbury Park terror attack, when a van was driven into worshippers outside a mosque. Ruzina Akhtar lost her father Makram Ali. This is her first interview about what happened that tragic night.

Putin’s grand imperial design for the total reconquest of Ukraine has been derailed.
There are four vital steps we must take to strengthen the hand of our Ukrainian friends and ensure we finish this war on the terms that @ZelenskyyUa has laid out.
We shall not forget the thousands of men, women and children who are being killed every day in Putin’s war of aggression.
The UK will work tirelessly with our allies to bring enduring peace to the people of Ukraine.
Thank you my friend President @ZelenskyyUa for hosting me in Ukraine yesterday.
It was incredibly moving to walk the streets of Kyiv with you once more, to pay tribute to your fallen soldiers whose sacrifice, unconquerable courage and bravery we will never forget.
To the Ukrainian people: the UK is with you and we will be with you until you ultimately prevail.
The UK has offered to spearhead a landmark programme to train thousands of soldiers for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Mr President, Volodymyr,
It is good to be in Kyiv again.
Remembering Jo Cox and her contribution to politics and public life. My thoughts are with her loved ones today.
We will never let those who commit evil and despicable acts to triumph over democracy.
Just Announced: I have sanctioned:
👉 Patriarch Kirill, Head of Russian Orthodox Church & vocal supporter of Putin’s war
👉 Enablers & perpetrators of Putin’s war who have brought suffering to Ukraine
I spoke to President @ZelenskyyUa this evening to reiterate the UK’s full support for Ukraine until its eventual victory.
The @G7 and @NATO summits later this month will be an opportunity to demonstrate the West’s unity and resolve to support Ukraine in the long-term.
In constant contact with @BorisJohnson. Coordinated positions on the eve of important international events. Discussed the situation on the battlefield, Ukraine's defense needs and threats to food security.
Thank you Len ⬇️
