U.K. Foreign Secretary Johnson To Visit Russia In Coming Weeks

“U.K. officials say Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will visit Russia in the coming weeks, but they said he would not drop his tough line on Moscow’s involvement in Syria and Ukraine…

Johnson has regularly criticized Russia, particularly over its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is supported by Moscow.

Johnson has also opposed easing of sanctions against Russia for its illegal annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region and its support of separatists in eastern Ukraine.”

U.K. Foreign Secretary Johnson To Visit Russia In Coming Weeks



I confess that my opinion of BJ has gone up somewhat after reading some of his comments…

“Crime has been falling steadily both in London and in New York - and the only reason I wouldn’t go to some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump.”

(But DT in NY? Never mind).

But if BJ’s visit is not for reasons of rapprochement then imo it can only further sour UK/Russian relations and poses many questions…

1. Is he a suitable candidate to represent UK overseas?
2. Is this going to be another Chamberlain fiasco?
3. Will Putin eat him for breakfast?
4. What do other members think about this?
5. Is he likely to get a haircut before he goes?

Re: Boris

He was never the right choice for FM. he has a similar way to DT of speaking his mind just to get an effect and then thinking about it later. One example is his very undiplomatic poem about the Turkish leader.

Re: Boris

Noted BJs stance with Russia over Syria & Ukraine has not changed. The EU is starting to twig that it needs Russian assistance over some issues............Libya for starters.

Re: Boris

BJ uses his somewhat outrageous exterior and sometimes tactless remarks to make us feel his is an idiot and disarm the opposition ... but in fact there is a pretty incisive brain in there. When lhe then says things which are not as extreme as people might have thought, it is easier for him to get agreement. He is also extremely charming. If any negotiations were becoming acrimonious, be could act daft and get out of it that way. He is just the right person to go to Russia because his grandfather was Russian and he can play on that. I have quite an admiration for Boris, and I am sure his trip will be a success.

Re: Boris

Boris is the total epitome of chinless wonder privileged careerist opportunist politicians.

If it suited his personal ambitions and selfish ego to about-turn on any issue he would do it in a heartbeat

His "disgust" at "evil regime" in Syria contrasting with his nauseating brown nosing to the Saudis is one of many examples of how shallow and self serving he is

That could cover many politicans, especially when it comes to Saudi.

Re: Boris

Not quite in the obvious self serving ways of Boris!!!

You should know better Spurs as his almost comical about face turns on Brexit were particularly cringeworthy

But does this give him the required respect of other international leaders

My guess is that he won’t meet Putin and that he’ll be stuck with Lavrov.

Well IMO most are of the same ilk, its only the fact of BJs position that he gets highlighted. I'm not really bothered on how he is, its results that count.
BJ & others from everywhere will continue to deal with Russia/Putin because there's no alternative. How many visits did John Kerry make to Moscow & what did he achieve? Everyone is looking to calm the situation down.

Re: Boris

You surprise me Spurs

I thought you would have been totally opposed to the "careerist privileged establishment knows best" types -over the ordinary man in the street
