Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘Wishful thinking will not suffice’: Rishi Sunak outlines British Foreign Policy in Banquet Speech” – below is their description.

‘Wishful thinking will not suffice’: Rishi Sunak outlines British Foreign Policy in Banquet Speech | Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has offered a vision of “robust pragmatism” in standing up to global competitors like China as he signalled an “evolutionary leap” in British foreign policy. In his first major foreign policy speech, Mr Sunak indicated to international dignitaries and business leaders on Monday that he would set a fresh direction for the UK’s place in the world after the premierships of Boris Johnson and Liz Truss. They were seen as taking more combative approaches with allies such as French president Emmanuel Macron, but in his speech Mr Sunak balanced his thinking on China and Russia with a promise of better relations with Europe amid the ongoing war in Ukraine. In the speech at the annual Lord Mayor’s Banquet in London’s Guildhall, Mr Sunak reiterated Government criticism of the arrest of a BBC journalist covering Covid protests in China.
