After a long selection process, Liz Truss was chosen by members of the UK Conservative Party to replace Boris Johnson as leader of the party and Prime Minister.
The new Prime Minister will have a heavy workload, and a raft of urgent decision that need to be made.
Truss will also have to decide how her new government approaches and engages with the Middle East and North Africa.
On this week's episode of The New Arab Voice, we explore the UK's relationship and engagement with the Middle East. Has the UK ever had a positive impact in the region? Who are the UK allies? Does the UK need the Middle East to ensure national prosperity? What are the UK's priorities in the region?
To help us, we were joined by Christopher Phillips (@cjophillips), Professor of International Relations at Queen Mary University of London (@QMUL), and one of the editors of What Next for Britain in the Middle East?
