Rishi Sunak will describe his “evolutionary” approach to dealing with Russia and China this evening in his first major foreign policy speech since becoming Prime Minister.

During a lavish dinner at London’s Guildhall for the Lord Mayor’s Banquet, Sunak will lay out his vision of Global Britain to business leaders and diplomats.

Top of the agenda will be reinstating his commitment to Ukraine. “Be in no doubt. We will stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes,” he is set to say.
