Boris Johnson Says he's not to Blame for Ambassador's Ouster
Friday, 12 July 2019 13:00 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Boris Johnson, the man likely to become U.K. prime minister within weeks, on Thursday denied playing any role in the departure of Britain's ambassador to Washington, who quit after coming under attack from President Donald Trump.

British politicians from both government and opposition parties have accused Johnson of spinelessness for failing to defend envoy Kim Darroch, and said the removal of a British ambassador because of pressure from a foreign leader was a severe blow to British diplomacy and power.

œThis is a direct challenge to a sovereign nation, said Tom Tugendhat, a Conservative lawmaker who heads Parliament's foreign affairs committee. He added that Britain œshouldn't be bullied.

Johnson told The Sun newspaper it was œbizarre people were blaming him for the departure of Darroch, who resigned following a furor over leaked diplomatic cables which labeled Trump's White House dysfunctional, clumsy and inept.
