Foreign Secretary travels to France for G7 meeting
Jeremy Hunt to attend Foreign Ministers' meeting of G7 nations in Dinard, France on 5 April 2019.
Today (5 April) the Foreign Secretary will be in Dinard, France for a meeting with his counterparts from G7 countries and the EU. During the summit the Foreign Secretary will discuss issues ranging from cyber security and foreign interference in democracies, to countering trafficking in the Sahel and standing up to Russian aggression.
The Foreign Secretary will discuss the latest Brexit developments and call on his European colleagues to support a further extension of Article 50 as set out by the Prime Minister.
Mr Hunt will also have discussions with partners on the UK’s campaign to raise the issue of media freedom up the global agenda to ensure a safer environment for journalists to report safely and freely across the world.
Speaking ahead of the meeting, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said:
The UK’s involvement in the G7 is vital for our collective security and prosperity as we seek to protect the rules-based international system – from standing strong against hostility from Russia, encouraging China to participate as a responsible international partner, to tackling threats from cyber-attacks and terrorism.
The UK is committed to playing a leading role on the world stage. Be in no doubt that once Brexit has happened the UK will remain a global power, and we will continue to work closely with our partners to tackle global challenges.
