The foreign Ministry was headed by Jeremy hunt – prior to that, he held the post of Minister of health .
Instead of Boris Johnson, who was released the day before, Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain will be Jeremy hunt was replaced as Minister. This became known from the message in the official account of the Prime Minister on Twitter.
“The Queen has been pleased to accept the appointment of the honourable Jeremy hunt as Minister for foreign Affairs and on Affairs of Commonwealth of the Nations”, – stated in the message to Downing street. As Minister of health instead of hunt departed Matthew Hancock – he previously held other positions in the government of Britain.
We will remind, on Monday, 9th July, Johnson resigned, explaining that the lack of support for its position on Brexit. Before that, on Friday, officials said after a fierce debate, approved a new plan for Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
It is assumed a “soft” option of “divorce”: the creation of a free trade zone with the EU for industrial and agricultural goods and the preservation of the customs of EU standards on the British borders.
Opponents of this strategy, among them former foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, believe that under such conditions, London will become addicted to the European Union, but at the same time will not be able to influence the decisions of Brussels.
