London, 15 Mar. . .

The prime minister, Boris Johnson, will call on Tuesday a joint review of his foreign and national security policy, which, according to British media, will pose the biggest foreign threat to Russia’s security.

The more than 100-page document has been described by the British government as the “biggest strategic review” since the Cold War, and comes after the country left the EU (EU) altogether and sought to restructure its alliances this decade.

One of the key features of this study is the Indo-Pacific approach, which Johnson wants to mark with a trip to India at the end of April, which will be his first major international movement since the outbreak of the epidemic.

In addition, Queen Elizabeth’s aircraft carrier will be the first in the region to join NATO allies, and the United Kingdom will seek ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) partner status.

For this reason, he supports the use of “all the weapons at his disposal” to increase his international presence and to shape an international order conducive to the progress of democracies.

Remember that the foundations of British foreign policy are the protection of human rights, the importance of the Atlantic relationship with the United States, the fight against terrorism and leadership in development cooperation.

But above all the document says that the conservative executive is putting up a fight against climate change.

“We will now build new relationships with partners around the world and build alliances for openness and innovation,” underscores the authors of the integrated review. EFE
