The United States has ignored the United Kingdom after referring to the European Union as an “indispensable partner” in a key defence document but failing to mention Britain.
The Biden-Harris administration stated in the US Government’s National Security Strategy, published on October 12, that “the EU — an integrated market of over 450 million people — is an indispensable partner, and we support efforts to foster EU unity.”
Despite the fact that the US and Britain have a “special relationship,” the document made no mention of them.
Richard Drax, a member of the Defence Select Committee, said it was “very strange” that the UK was not mentioned.
He added: “Without the US, we would be naked in the conference chamber. They are crucial to us, as you say we are crucial to them.
“So I am surprised – and surprised you’re not surprised – that we are not mentioned in it.”
