David Cameron has made a dramatic comeback to government and the Prime Minister has appointed him as the new Foreign Secretary.
The former Prime Minister entered Downing Street on Monday morning just before the reshuffle started.
King Charles III appointed Cameron as a baron for life on Monday morning.
In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Cameron said the UK is “facing a daunting set of international challenges, including the war in Ukraine and the crisis in the Middle East.”
He added, “At this time of profound global change, it has rarely been more important for this country to stand by our allies, strengthen our partnerships and make sure our voice is heard.”
He said , “I hope that my experience – as Conservative Leader for eleven years and prime minister for six – will assist me in helping the prime minister to meet these vital challenges.”
He added, “Working to help ensure stability and security on the global stage is both essential and squarely in our national interest. International security is vital for our domestic security.”
Theresa May wrote on X, Congratulations to@David_Cameron on his return to government. His immense experience on the international stage will be invaluable at this time of great uncertainty in our world.
“Looking forward to working together again!”
