Today, the Commonwealth Games will begin in Birmingham. This is a fantastic opportunity for the UK to celebrate sporting success as we showcase the best of Britain on a global stage.
The Commonwealth Games is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the enduring bond between 54 countries and 2.4 billion citizens. The Commonwealth has over 70 years of history as a driver for peace, democracy, and human rights around the world.
I would like to wish Team Wales the best of luck at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. I know that everyone taking part will make Wales proud!
