An outspoken opponent to the war in Iraq, he has criticised the Bush administration for its lack of support to the UN and said that the UK and the US are no longer "joined at the hip". Instead, he has talked about building on Britain's partnerships with its European neighbours and broadening its international alliances to embrace NGOs such as Oxfam and Save the Children as well as terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah in the interests of dialogue.

He has endorsed celebrity campaigning on Darfur and supported Spielberg's withdrawal of support for the Olympics over China's human rights record. He was the first British minister to visit Burma for 15 years in the wake of the recent cyclone. Most recently he has called on the British government to impose sanctions on Mugabe.
