I welcome Canada’s report on the decisions that led to the downing of flight #PS752. Iran must accept responsibility for creating conditions that allowed the tragedy to occur.
🇬🇧&🇨🇦 are working to improve @ICAO procedures & the safer skies initiative to stop this happening again https://t.co/fSg8g83TC4
Canada released a report that confirms that Iranian civilian and military authorities, through their decisions, actions, and omissions, are responsible for the downing of #PS752. We will pursue reparations for the harm that Iran has caused to the victims and their families. https://t.co/GOKrXt2d8c

Good to see @VivianBala again to discuss the UK’s @ASEAN & #CPTPP applications & our joint partnership, the Commonwealth & shared approach towards addressing regional priorities such as climate change, #Myanmar, travel & recovery from Covid-19. https://t.co/V2yI75TQ1O
Started the last day of my #SouthEast Asia visit in Singapore 🇸🇬 at a roundtable with UK & Singaporean business representatives. We discussed supply chain digitalisation which could save 4 billion paper documents a year globally and create greater economic resilience. https://t.co/y4Fd6yGRqR
Deeply moved by the testimonies of victims of the Khmer Rouge at @TuolSlengMuseum and the Documentation Centre of Cambodia.
🇬🇧 is committed to back their pursuit of truth and justice through our support for the Khmer Rouge Tribunal. https://t.co/rX77x5F2Ni
The forced closure of @AppleDaily_HK by Hong Kong authorities is a chilling demonstration of their campaign to silence all opposition voices.
It is clearer than ever that the NSL is being used to curtail freedom & punish dissent. https://t.co/Y08LrmIInD
Positive discussion today with #Cambodia’s Environment Minister #SaySamal, focussing on how we can work together on 🇰🇭 climate ambitions ahead of #COP26 & shared priorities like reforestation, biodiversity & tackling the illegal wildlife trade #IWThttps://t.co/YF0Fkpj3Pr
Delighted to meet Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn to discuss our shared priorities such as trade, human rights & #Myanmar.
The UK looks forward to working together more closely during Cambodia’s 2022 #ASEAN chairmanship. https://t.co/AhZL9pK3Rb
View at dawn over Phnom Penh’s Mekong River - the first, I’m told, for a British Foreign Secretary since 1953. Here to boost trade, support Cambodia’s energy transition, expand UK ASEAN cooperation - and as a force for good in the Indo-Pacific. #GlobalBritainhttps://t.co/EJl9R4fUEq
Delighted to arrive in #Phnom-Penh today as the first UK Foreign Secretary to visit #Cambodia since we reopened @ukincambodia in 1991. 🇬🇧 looks forward to working closely with 🇰🇭 during its ASEAN chairmanship in 2022.
The 2019 tragedy in Essex where 39 Vietnamese died still haunts us. Today In Hanoi, I’ve met with Minister of Public Security To Lam to tackle illegal immigration, #human trafficking & transnational crime. We must never allow such a tragedy to happen again. https://t.co/0O9FZwwyfj
Today the UK supported Canada’s 🇨🇦 statement at the @UN_HRC condemning China’s human rights violations in Xinjiang and the undermining of rights and freedoms in Hong Kong.
The Chinese authorities must abide by their international human rights obligations.
Today the UK has published the strategic case for seeking accession to CPTPP. This is a big step towards a stronger trading relationship with the Indo-Pacific region - and will create jobs & opportunities for British businesses. https://t.co/TErFdebS5G
Today we launch negotiations to join #CPTPP.
Joining this free trade area – home to 500m people – would hitch the UK to some of the world’s biggest current and future economies with a joint GDP of £9trn in 2019.

Great to be back in Hanoi, where I’m meeting with key partners, including @FMBuiThanhSon, Pres. Phuc, @DPMPhamBinhMinh to discuss trade & economic ties. The UK values its partnership with Vietnam and we look forward to building on the Strategic Partnership launched last year. https://t.co/27ZR3qiaMK
