His visit looked at the global challenges and issues that UK and Peru are both tackling, including ending the illegal wildlife trade and improving access to education for women and girls.

Today we're flying the flag for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.

Foreign Secretary @borisjohnsonmp: “Standing up for human rights, including LGBT rights, is an integral part of our work. Societies where people live freely attract world-class talent, business investment and are more stable and prosperous.” #IDAHOBIT2018 #IDAHOBIT #rainbowflag

President of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela and the Foreign Secretary swapped football shirts today, ahead of the World Cup.
@borisjohnsonmp said "Next month, England and Panama will play against one another in the World Cup, so we'll be on opposing sides for 90 minutes. But before, during and after that game we share a top priority for the World Cup - the safety and security of our nationals." Governments from all 31 participating nations have been working together to prepare for the World Cup, helping the Russian authorities improve safety and security for all fans.

We estimate that between 4,000 and 10,000 England fans will travel to Russia. Our staff have visited all 11 host cities, met with representatives from each competing nation, and our 'Be On The Ball' campaign offers fans specialist guidance and advice.

A GREAT night in Budapest – on 1 May Budapest’s British Thematic Month finished with a ’God Save the Queen’ concert at @mupabudapest in Hungary. The @danubiaorchestra performed the very best of British classical music and @ambassadorlindsay was on stage performing in a Benjamin Britten piece.
