A very Happy #StAndrewsDay to those celebrating across the UK and around the world 🏴
Happy #Diwali and #BandiChhorDivas! I know that this year celebrations will be different, but I am filled with respect for the way British Hindus, Sikhs and Jains have gone out of their way to help others throughout this pandemic.
No virus will stop us from honouring the memory of the servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Today, as every day, we will remember them. #LestWeForget
I just spoke to @JoeBiden to congratulate him on his election. I look forward to strengthening the partnership between our countries and to working with him on our shared priorities – from tackling climate change, to promoting democracy and building back better from the pandemic.
I’m delighted that the United Kingdom has now protected more than 4.3 million sq km of the world’s ocean. With the announcement of Tristan da Cunha’s new Marine Protection Zone, we have helped to protect an area of ocean 17 times the size of the UK.
