UK Defense Minister Gavin Williamson said that while strengthening its grip on China in the Indian Pacific region, Britain needs stronger armed forces. In the Royal United States Institute, Williamson said that Britain should stand against those who violate international rules. He said that on 29 March the country is planning to get out of the European Union, which has brought "the greatest opportunity" to strengthen its global presence for the UK. He presented a detailed plan for modernization of the Armed Forces. According to BBC News, They unearthed the plans of two military ships, which can be deployed for help during the crisis and for military operations.
Williamson also confirmed that the Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth is being deployed in the Pacific, where China is involved in a dispute over the claim on the South China Sea. China claims the entire South China Sea, while Taiwan, Philippine, Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam also claim it. The Defense Minister said that Russia is restructuring its military arsenal. China is also developing its modern capacity and professional power.
