Johnson is going to change foreign secretary

Prime Minister of Great Britain Boris Johnson may already on Wednesday carry out a reshuffle in his office, replacing the foreign ministers Dominica Raaba and the Ministry of Education Gavin Williamson… This was reported by the Times newspaper.

Previously in office since 2019, Raab has been the target of fierce criticism from the opposition. This happened after the British media reported that the head of the Foreign Office was on vacation in Greece when his Afghan counterpart Mohammad Hanif Atmar tried to get in touch with him on August 13 to discuss the evacuation of British citizens from Afghanistan amid the offensive of members of the radical movement ” Taliban “(banned in the Russian Federation). According to press reports, Raab instructed one of his deputies to hold talks on this topic with the head of the Afghan Foreign Ministry, but this conversation ultimately did not take place.

According to The Times, Raab will be offered to remain in the government, for example, as Minister of Justice or head the cabinet secretariat. Among the most likely candidates to head the Foreign Ministry, the publication names the Minister of Foreign Trade, Elizabeth Truss and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Minister at Large), Michael Gove.

By the decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of February 14, 2003, the Taliban movement was recognized as a terrorist organization. His activities in Russia are prohibited.
