French Government Minister Criticises Boris Johnson, the new Foreign Secretary


Boris Johnson, the new Foreign Secretary, has been fiercely criticised by Jean-Marc Ayrault, the French Foreign Minister and former Prime Minister.

Reuters quote the French Minister as saying:

“I am not at all worried about Boris Johnson, but… during the campaign he lied a lot to the British people and now it is he who has his back against the wall”.

Boris Johnson is yet to respond to the criticism.
