Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, is seeking to promote the UK as a “good global citizen” when he attends this week’s UN General Assembly in New York. He said that the UK must do more than just promote free trade, but must lead by example on matters of global importance.
Raab said in a statement:
“As we leave the EU, the UK will walk tall in the world and step up our commitment to being a good global citizen. Our message to the United Nations is that we will lead by example and work tirelessly to strengthen the rules-based international system – to tackle climate change, protect journalists from attack, and uphold freedom of navigation on the high seas.”
