Prime Minister emphasizes diplomacy as a means to promote UK priorities on the global platform.

The Prime Minister of the UK is set to embark on a packed tour of international engagements, starting with attending the Council of Europe Summit in Iceland on May 16th. This summit is significant as it is the oldest multilateral institution on the continent, promoting freedom and democracy for over 70 years. The Prime Minister will discuss strengthening Europe’s borders, tackling illegal immigration, and the threat posed by Russia at this summit.

The Prime Minister will then head to Tokyo for a bilateral visit ahead of the G7 summit, where he will announce new UK-Japan defense and technology cooperation. This will be followed by discussions with business leaders to bring new major investments to the UK.

The G7 summit in Hiroshima is significant as it marks the first time a British Prime Minister will visit the historic city. At the G7 summit, the UK will prepare for escalating military action against Russia’s war of aggression, revitalize international action against economic coercion by hostile states, and step up support for Ukraine.

The Prime Minister has said that he looks forward to visiting Japan, an important economic and defense partner of the UK in the Indo-Pacific. He hopes to drive global action on pressing priorities such as security, economic policy, national threats, and sustainable infrastructure investment in the world.

The Prime Minister is expected to hold several bilateral meetings during his tour. Further details of his visit to the Council of Europe and visits to Tokyo and Hiroshima will be announced later this week.
