    Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has hosted US Secretary of State Antony Blinken for talks a day ahead of the first face-to-face discussions in two years of foreign and development ministers from the G7. The UK holds this year’s presidency of the G7.

    The pair will hold a press conference from No 9 Downing Street from 5.15pm.

    On Tuesday, the full G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US) will meet along with others, including representatives from other countries, including Australia, India and South Africa.

    Ahead of the gathering, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned that “authoritarian states” around the world are “trying to play us against each other” and that breaches of international law have become commonplace.

    “It is important that we hold our values of democracy, state of law, human rights and a global order based on rules against them, united and credibly,” he said.
