Britain must dare to step back into some of the world’s most intractable conflict zones in the Middle East to avoid decades of further terror and instability, Boris Johnson will say on Thursday.
In a speech setting out his vision for foreign policy after Brexit, the Foreign Secretary argues that the scars left by Western interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya must not paralyse Britain’s willingness to engage.
“British foreign policy is not the problem; it is part of the solution,” he will say, arguing that the troubles in Syria, Yemen and the wider Middle East “have been exacerbated not so much by Western meddling as by our aloofness”.
