In this episode, U.K. Foreign Secretary David Cameron sits down with Anne McElvoy at the World Economic Forum to discuss the Houthi attacks in the Red Sea, Britain’s role in the Israel-Hamas war, as well as Russia’s ongoing war in Ukraine — which he says is his “absolute number one priority.” Cameron adds, “One thing we can do is demonstrate during the course of this year that Putin isn’t winning.”

Cameron also addresses U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s controversial policy to send asylum seekers to Rwanda to process their applications (known as the Rwanda policy) and reveals more about his return to front-line Conservative party politics, reflects on what it’s like to be a former prime minister returning in a different role. “I say that being prime minister for six years was a good apprenticeship for being foreign secretary,” he tells Anne.
