UK to merge international development ministry and Foreign Office

The UK plans to merge the Foreign Office and its international development ministry, PM Boris Johnson said on Tuesday. Critics panned the decision saying it was a deliberate distraction from the government’s COVID-19 response and would diminish Britain’s overseas influence. ’This will unite our aid with our diplomacy and bring them together in our international effort’, Johnson said in parliament.
