An honour to welcome Ukraine’s Ambassador @VPrystaiko to Labour Conference. As the packed room showed, our party stands in total solidarity with the Ukrainian people in their heroic struggle against Vladimir Putin’s monstrous imperialism.

The climate crisis is the biggest challenge the world faces. It is not a distant threat, but here today, devastating the lives of millions of people. While Liz Truss tries to row back on our Net Zero commitments, @UKLabour's foreign policy will be Green. independent.co.uk/climate-ch…

In government, we will put the environment at the top of the international agenda by pushing for climate action to become a fourth pillar of the UN.

Working with international partners at the ICC, we will push for a new international law of ecocide. This will create international criminal responsibility for large scale, wanton, and unlawful destruction of the environment.

We will recommit to 0.7% development spending, to support developing countries addressing climate change and meet the UK’s commitments to international climate finance following government cuts.

Just as Robin Cook was right to introduce an ‘ethical dimension’ to our foreign policy in the 1990s, it is right that the next Labour government introduces a ‘Green dimension’.

.@Keir_Starmer is spot on. The right thing to do is reverse the @Conservatives' tax cuts for those earning over £150,000, but support the cut to the basic rate. @UKLabour is on the side of working people.

12 years of Conservative governments making diplomatic gaffes, planning to break international law, failing to live up to promises on climate and aid have left Britain isolated on the global stage. My interview with the Guardian from #UNGA 👇🏿
David Lammy warns UK’s lack of leadership on aid is alienating global south and threatening the strength of the alliance on Ukraine. Urges U.K. to engage with Europe on defence and Macron’s new European Political Community. theguardian.com/global-devel…

I have a joke about trickle down economics. 99% of you won’t ever get it.

Oil and Gas producers will be celebrating the Chancellor's announcements this morning. Working people are being left to pick up the bill in the middle of a cost of living crisis. 12 years of economic failure by the @Conservatives. Britain needs a fresh start.

As the US, Canada, Germany and the EU Commission commit to 30% increases to the Global Fund to tackle HIV, malaria and TB, the UK's absence shows the @Conservatives retreat from the world stage. @UKLabour will bring Britain back to multilateralism. theguardian.com/global-devel…

Has to be seen to be believed: Penny Mordaunt, Trade Minister until a few weeks ago, has again admitted the Conservative Government can't get a US trade deal & is now asking @UKLabour for help to get it moving… ...the Tories may not be up to the job, but we are ready to go.

Returned from important meetings at #UNGA in New York. With @UKLabour, Britain will rebuild relationships, re-engage in multilateralism and be a trusted partner once again.

Hugely relieved to hear five British prisoners of war held by Russia have now been freed. My thanks to the @FCDOGovUK and all those who worked to secure their release. news.sky.com/story/five-brit…

At a time when we need to restore Britain’s global influence and return to multilateralism, this is more short-sightedness from the @Conservatives. It will slow the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria and damage the UK’s national interest.

What happened @trussliz?
Positive meeting with @USAmbUK - we agreed to fast-track negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement. A UK-US trade deal is my #1 priority and we will deliver it as soon as possible. #ReadyToTrade 🇬🇧 🇺🇸

They do not change the legitimacy of Ukraine’s sovereignty or justify Putin's illegal war of aggression. The world must reject any attempt to change borders by force.

Putin's desperate plans for mobilisation show how badly the war is going. Now is the time for the UK to show our resolve and stand behind Ukraine, providing the military, political, economic and diplomatic support the country needs.
