UK Environment Minister Therese Coffey has resigned amid a reshuffle. Reuters reported this on November 13.
“I believe now is the time to leave government,” the agency quotes Coffey’s letter to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
In a response letter, the British Prime Minister thanked Coffey for her dedicated service and also noted her contribution to supporting the rural economy.
Coffey has served in several positions throughout her government career. She was health secretary, work and pensions secretary, and served as deputy to former prime minister Liz Truss.
Earlier in the day, Sunak dismissed Home Secretary Suella Braverman. This decision was made after she published an article criticizing the actions of the police during protests in support of Palestine.
Braverman’s place should be taken by James Cleverley, who was removed from the post of British Foreign Minister. In his place, former Prime Minister David Cameron will become foreign minister.
Professor of the Department of European Studies at St. Petersburg State University Stanislav Tkachenko, in a conversation with Izvestia, said that Sunak attracted Cameron to international affairs in order to adequately represent Great Britain in the international arena.
On the morning of October 7, Hamas subjected Israeli territory to massive rocket fire from the Gaza Strip and invaded the border areas in the south of the country and took hostages. That same day, Israel began retaliating against targets in the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinians want to return the borders between the two countries that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War, with a possible exchange of territories, and create their own state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with its capital in East Jerusalem.
