Minister meets UK Foreign Secretary

Minister of Foreign Affairs II Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Erywan bin Pehin Datu Pekerma Jaya Haji Mohd Yusof met with his United Kingdom (UK) counterpart Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab during the Group of Seven (G7) Foreign and Development Ministers’ meeting in London yesterday.

This was the first time that a representative from ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) was invited to attend a G7 foreign ministers’ meeting.

The UK’s invitation to the ASEAN Chair to attend the G7 meeting signals the UK’s emphasis on a closer alignment with the Indo-Pacific region, as outlined in the UK’s Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy published in March.
