Cameron met Zelensky in Kiev on his first trip abroad as British foreign secretary

THE British Foreign Secretary David Cameron traveled to war-torn Kiev and met with President Volodymyr Zelensky for talks during his first working trip abroad, the Ukrainian leader said today.

Former prime minister Cameron, who was appointed Britain’s new foreign secretary on Monday, says in a video released by Zelensky’s office that he wants to underline London’s support for Ukraine.

Zelensky said he was grateful for the visit, which comes as a conflict rages in the Middle East that he said has distracted the world from Ukraine’s war with Russia, now in its 21st month and not seen to end.

“The world is not as focused on the situation on the battlefield in Ukraine, and the fact that attention is divided really doesn’t help,” he said.

Britain has been a close ally of Ukraine throughout the war launched in February 2022 by Russia.

“What I want to say being here is that we will continue to give you the moral support, the diplomatic support … but above all the military support that you need, not only this year and next year, but for as long as it takes,” he said. Cameron.

He added that Britain will work with allies ‘to ensure the focus is here on Ukraine’.

The Ukrainian statement did not say when the talks took place. The tight security measures in place because of the war mean that details of visits by foreign officials are sometimes made public with time lags.
