This is one of the most controversial measures of the post-Brexit era.

Johnson stressed that the fact that Rwanda is going to host this summit “is an opportunity for everyone to understand what this agreement has to offer, what Rwandans have to offer, and to help put an end to some of these condescending attitudes towards Rwanda.” , as reported by the British television channel Sky News.
