Dominic Raab – 2021 Comments on UK Carrier Strike Group Deployment

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, on 16 July 2021.

The Carrier Strike Group deployment marks the start of a new era of defence cooperation with allies in India and the Indo-Pacific.

By visiting 40 countries and working alongside our partners, the UK is standing up for democratic values, seizing new trading opportunities and tackling the shared threats we face together.

The deployment will interact with India, strengthening our already deep ties for the benefit of both our peoples’ security and prosperity.
