Keir Starmer highlights major threats to western countries in global engagements
Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party, is attending a summit in Canada to address the major threats faced by western countries, including people-smuggling, terrorism, climate change, and weakening democracy. He emphasizes the need for international cooperation to tackle these challenges and will be joined by shadow foreign secretary David Lammy. Starmer's international engagements are seen as an effort to enhance his leadership credentials ahead of a potential general election next year. He is expected to meet French President Emmanuel Macron and may also seek a meeting with US President Joe Biden.
