British defense Secretary Ben Wallace fears the consequences of the policy of isolationism of the United States, pursued by President Donald trump. Said Wallace in an interview with The Sunday Times, in the future the United Kingdom may lose the military support of the Americans.
If the United States will lose leadership in the world, the Minister said, the UK will have to rely on their own strength.
“It will be bad for peace and bad for us. We are preparing for the worst and hope for the best,” said Wallace.
the Minister of defence of the United Kingdom drew attention to the fact that the United States brought soldiers from Syria, but in General trump wants to replace in some countries, the American contingent in the NATO force.
“We are very dependent on air support of U.S. reconnaissance and surveillance. We need to diversify our powers and means”, — said Wallace.
the head of the UK Ministry of defence concluded that assumptions 2010 on “perpetual coalition with the United States” can not be justified in the future, because the US has changed priorities in the middle East, writes TASS.
