Excellent meeting w/ Minister for the Armed Forces @JSHeappey. Thanked him for 🇬🇧’s vital early support for 🇽🇰 and today’s great bilateral relations. We are joined against 🇷🇺’s aggression in 🇺🇦, and share common goals for peace, freedom, democracy & security in the region.

I’ve been uncomfortable with much of what’s emerged about events in No 10 during Covid lockdowns. But UK faces enormous economic & security challenges that can’t be wished away. This is time for Govt to deliver not squabble amongst itself. I’ll be supporting the PM this evening.

I’ve visited many @CWGC cemeteries around the world. Graves are always kept so immaculately, grass cut & hedges trimmed. So in #WarGravesWeek thank you to all those amazing people tending the cemeteries like these 2 wonderful chaps I had pleasure of meeting in Islamabad this week

1/9 The UK’s Minister for Armed Forces @JSHeappey was in #Uganda for discussions on regional security & stability and the situation in #Ukraine. This morning he spoke with @ntvuganda #MorningAtNTV and said 👇🏼

Our (United Kingdom) relationship with people is that we are a freedom-loving democracy that believes in doing the right thing in the world. If you believe in the same, we would like to partner with you and help. Uganda clearly ...

When the UK does business with a country, we pride ourselves on making nothing more than a valued proposition. We don’t come and expect you to take on debt and then hold that debt over you for years to come - @JSHeappey, Minister for Armed Forces, United Kingdom #MorningAtNTV

President Museveni is effusive about a regional solution to the Eastern DRC, and I think the UK has a role in looking at how we can help Uganda and her partners in the region to operationalise that as a solution - @JSHeappey, Min. for Armed Forces, United Kingdom #MorningAtNTV

Uganda is utterly selfless in its willingness to commit to Somalia. People in Somalia speak very keenly about the bravery and the way that the Uganda armed forces contribute to that mission - @JSHeappey, Minister for Armed Forces, United Kingdom #MorningAtNTV

I think that both the UK & Uganda share concerns about the progress that is being made in Somalia. We both recognise that there needs to be renewed political importance to drive forward a lasting security transition in Somalia - @JSHeappey, Min. for Armed Forces, UK #MorningAtNTV

This week we will mark 5 years of the eFP Estonia Battlegroup.

I am immensely proud of everything that we have achieved and the contributions made by 🇬🇧 @BritishArmy, 🇫🇷 @armeedeterre, 🇩🇰@forsvaretdk and 🇮🇸 @MFAIceland, alongside our partners 🇪🇪 @Kaitsevagi.


Kenya is the UK’s strongest partner on defence and security in East Africa - and we’re working together for the stability of the region.
