Ben Wallace – 2021 Comments on Carrier Cooperation Agreement

The comments made by Ben Wallace, the Secretary of State for Defence, on 13 July 2021.

It was great to meet up with Lloyd Austin again after our meetings in London and Brussels.

The US continues to be the UK’s most important defence partner and we are working together, across all domains, to confront future threats. There is much to do but the extension we agreed will ensure that we can cooperate even more seamlessly with our forces across the globe.
