British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss calls for “calmness and unity” after Boris Johnson quit as Conservative Party leader following a series of scandals and an exodus of cabinet ministers.

“The PM has made the right decision. The Government under Boris’s leadership had many achievements — delivering Brexit, vaccines and backing Ukraine. We need calmness and unity now and to keep governing while a new leader is found,” she tweets from Bali where she is scheduled to attend a G20 ministerial meeting on Friday.
