And I want to start by thanking my predecessor, Boris Johnson, who has been one of the great driving forces in British politics, and as foreign secretary orchestrated an incredibly important response to the attack on the Skripals in Salisbury, amongst a lot of other very, very important work. And my principal job at a time of massive importance for our country is to stand full-square behind the prime minister so that we can get through an agreement with the European Union based on what was agreed by the cabinet last week in Chequers.
But most of all, this is a time when the world is looking at us as a country, wondering what type of country we're going to be in a post-Brexit world. And what I want to say to them is that Britain is going to be a dependable ally, a country that stands up for the values that matter to the people of this country. And we'll be a strong and confident voice in the world.
