What recent diplomatic steps he has taken with his overseas counterparts to tackle the covid-19 pandemic.
11 May 2020
The UK is playing a major role in the global response as we galvanise support for our Four-Point Plan: 1) co-ordinating the global health response; 2) accelerating the search for a vaccine, treatments and testing; 3) securing a sound economic response; and 4) bringing our people home.
The Foreign Secretary and Ministerial team are carrying out extensive bilateral and multilateral engagement, including with G7/G20 counterparts, and working with international companies to tackle the crisis.
We are also working closely with UN Security Council members and the UN Secretary-General to address pandemic and secondary impacts, including instability.
Through our international engagement, we have repeatedly made clear that measures taken by States to tackle CV19 must be necessary, proportionate, time-bound, transparent and regularly reviewed.
