On planet Earth, enormous changes are happening, especially concerning political currents and elections in major world powers. All eyes are focused on events in some of the European powers and other continents, aware that political elections can change the future of our planet and influence the current chaotic situation. The latest example of this is the elections in France, as well as the election of David Lammy.

The newly appointed British Foreign Secretary, David Lammy, is an interesting figure on the political scene, and many speculate about the moves Lammy might make and how important he will be in global politics and the world situation. Judging by everything, Lammy enjoys huge trust from the citizens of Britain, who expect great things from him in the coming period. Having such responsibility is not easy, but Lammy seems like someone who knows how to balance on multiple fronts. 

He is a political figure who didn't just appear on the political scene out of nowhere. For years, he has been building his name and status in the world of politics, and after becoming British Foreign Secretary, he has reached the pinnacle of his political career. His statements attract attention, so it will be interesting to see what Lammy has to offer us.

The newly appointed British Foreign Secretary spoke to The Guardian about interesting topics such as the war in Ukraine and the Middle East, as well as Britain's relationships with other countries around the world. 

Right from the start, Lammy emphasized that the world is deeply divided at this moment, which poses a challenge for Britain. Wars raging worldwide, threats, and extreme statements by some world leaders do not cause optimism.

“The world is a dangerous divided place, and this is a tough, geopolitical moment with huge challenges for Britain, but I’m excited about the project which is reconnecting Britain with the global community,” -David Lammy said.

Lammy believes that Britain must change its policy in the world and connect with countries around the world. Brexit is not something that Lammy wants to emphasize, rather focusing on the future and creating new positive relations with countries around the planet. A new political figure in the world stresses that European nations are a priority, considering European countries as friends of Britain. Lammy is a broad-minded person, a liberal person, and a politician who knows what he wants.

“Britain has to start reconnecting with the world. Let us put the Brexit years behind us. We are not going to rejoin the single market and the customs union but there is much that we can do together. I want to be absolutely clear, European nations are our friends.”- he continued.

David Lammy and war

A war that takes place on two fronts; Ukraine and Palestine, deepened the crisis and caused fear in many countries. This especially applies to the war in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin and the invasion of Ukraine are the reasons why many fear for the security situation not only of Ukraine but of countries around the world. David Lammy believes that because of the war in Europe, the British should continue to work on the security aspect of the country and invest money in defense.

The British Foreign Secretary referred to the situation in Palestine, wanting to force a balanced position. His desire, as well as the desire of many, is to reach a ceasefire. He promoted it last year. No one wants to see an increasing number of victims day by day, and a scenario in which children and the elderly are starving, without basic human conditions. Lammy hopes and expects that both sides could come to an understanding and reach a peace agreement.

David Lammy is aware of how important a role he will play in British politics and how crucial Britain is in global politics. Even before he began his current role, he had thought about many things. He admitted that every day he contemplated the role he would have, the responsibilities it carries and the pinnacle of his political career. Lammy understands politics and political events and wants to change some things through his actions.

The British Foreign Secretary is a person from whom the citizens of Britain expect great things, hoping that he can influence every aspect of this country. He has a big task ahead of him, but we do not doubt that Lammy will do his job in a great way. His dedication, desire, and passion for a better future could be felt in every line. David Lammy is not a person who wants to make promises. Rather, he is someone who wants to show through his actions how much he loves his job and country.
