David Lammy, son of Guyanese immigrants, is the new Foreign Secretary in the UK

David Lammy has reacted on X, external, after being appointed foreign secretary in Starmer’s cabinet.

“It is the honour of my life,” he says.

Lammy adds that the “world faces huge challenges”, saying he will “navigate them with the UK’s enormous strengths”.

“We will reconnect Britain for our security and prosperity at home.”

Previously, he pledged to reset relations with the European Union and push for a ceasefire in Gaza, while seeking to build ties with Donald Trump’s Republican Party.

Lammy, the son of Guyanese immigrants, represents an inner-London constituency and has spent much of his political career campaigning for social and racial justice.

He supported Britain remaining in the European Union in the 2016 referendum. While Labour has promised Britain will stay outside the bloc, it wants to reset the relationship and seek to deepen ties, including through a new UK-EU security pact.
