London, 14 November 2023 (TDI): The former UK prime minister, David Cameron, has made a remarkable return to politics as the country’s foreign secretary, showcasing the boldness of Rishi Sunak in his efforts to revitalize his political career.
However, this development is part of a broader reshuffle, wherein Suella Braverman dismissed from her position as home secretary and subsequently replaced by James Cleverly, who previously held the role of foreign secretary.
The Prime Minister has extended the invitation for me to take on the role of Foreign Secretary, a responsibility I’ve accepted with enthusiasm, said David Cameron.
Moreover, Cameron said, “delighted to accept” Sunak’s offer, “I believe in public service.” He said, “While I have been out of frontline politics for the last seven years, I hope that my experience as Conservative Leader for eleven years and Prime Minister for six will assist me in helping the Prime Minister to meet these vital challenges.”
We’re navigating through a complex array of global challenges, from the conflict in Ukraine to the turmoil in the Middle East. In these times of significant global shifts, it’s crucial for our nation to stand firm with our allies, fortify partnerships, and ensure our voice resonates, he added.
Britain is undeniably an international player. Our citizens reside across the globe, and our businesses engage in trade worldwide.
Working towards global stability and security is not only essential but firmly aligns with our national interests. International security forms the bedrock of our domestic stability.
While there might have been disagreements on specific decisions, it’s evident to me that Rishi Sunak is a resilient and adept Prime Minister, exhibiting commendable leadership during challenging times, Cameron added.
I’m committed to aiding him in ensuring the security and prosperity vital for our nation and being part of a robust team when the General Election arrives, he said.
My belief in public service has been the driving force since my entry into politics in the 1980s, transitioning into government in the 1990s, becoming a Member of Parliament in the 2000s, and stepping up as Party Leader and Prime Minister.
My prior tenure in office has acquainted me with their outstanding, patriotic, and hardworking personnel. Under the leadership of James Cleverly, whose new role I eagerly anticipate collaborating with, these departments have thrived, he said.
