British Defense Chief Urges Bolstering Military Post-Brexit, Warns Russia Of 'Costs'

In a speech to the Royal United Services Institute think tank here on Monday, Williamson said the 65,000-tonne carrier Queen Elizabeth - which was commissioned in 2017 - would also make appearances in the Mediterranean and the Middle East along the way, reports CNN.

The Defence Secretary has announced groups of unmanned aircraft will seek to penetrate enemy air defences, all controlled by a pilot in one of the RAF's new F-35 stealth jets.

Gavin Williamson will warn in a speech that Britain must stand up to those who "flout global law".

The defence secretary said the government is invoking a "Global Britain" mantra which must involve "action to oppose those who flout worldwide law".

The defence secretary said Russian Federation is "resurgent" and rebuilding its military arsenal, adding that China is also developing its modern capability and commercial power.

Defending interventionist policy, he will say the cost of failing to act in global crises had often been "unacceptably high", and that Western powers can not "walk on by when others are in need".

He said the United Kingdom would build new alliances and rekindle old ones, and shared his belief that Britain "should be the nation that people turn to when the world needs leadership".

"To talk but fail to act risks our nation being seen as little more than a paper tiger", he will add.

He added: "History has taught us that crisis comes when it is least expected".

"In the past five years, the alliance has come a long way - it is far more focused and ready to deter and defend against Russian hostile acts".

Campaign Against Arms Trade has responded to a speech "Defence in Global Britain" by the Secretary of State for Defence, Gavin Williamson in which he spoke about the need for "hard power to support our global interests" and increased "lethality". "If we do not, we will find ourselves with fewer options when we face threats in the future".
