Liz Truss named Britain's new foreign secretary


Liz Truss has been appointed UK foreign secretary, replacing Dominic Raab in Boris Johnson’s cabinet reshuffle, The Independent reports.

The appointment was confirmed by Downing Street in a tweet shortly after Ms Truss was seen entering No 10.

Her promotion came as it was announced that Michael Gove was being moved to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, with a new cross-government responsibility for Mr Johnson’s “levelling up” agenda.

Despite dramatically falling out with Mr Johnson after sabotaging his leadership bid in 2016, Mr Gove has become a powerful figure in his administration as Cabinet Office minister.

Despite being a forthright member of the Remain camp in the 2016 EU referendum, Ms Truss became a darling of the Tory grassroots for her efforts to forge new post-Brexit deals around the world as International Trade secretary.

She becomes only the second woman to lead the Foreign Office, following Margaret Beckett in 2006/07.
