Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has told his officials to work carefully to manage relations with the U.S. and China -- and avoid the U.K. becoming trapped in a new “Cold War” between the two countries.

The minister held an internal meeting of British diplomats and officials on Sept. 2 during which he set out his vision for “global Britain” and outlined the approach for the newly-formed government department he leads -- the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
