The UK will have to join wars to forge closer relationships with countries outside the European Union (EU), according to Trevor Taylor of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) think tank.

Britain’s long-standing defence security policy has been to contribute militarily in global conflicts, and as the country will be spreading its wings away from the EU, it will have to place more focus on other countries, he said.

Just yesterday America announced Britain would join 17,500 US troops in a joint military exercise with South Korea.

They would be part of a team of 3,000 troops from Australia, Canada, Columbia, Denmark, New Zealand and The Netherlands joining US forces.

The drill will be a 10-day computer-simulated defence exercise, starting on Monday.

And the disputed South China Sea will be another focus for the UK to send its military in a bid to deepen relationships with the United States and Australia, according to the defence management research fellow.

Speaking from the internationally respected think tank, Mr Taylor, said: “The Ministry of Defence has expressed an interest in being involved in Asia and the South China Sea.

“The British defence security policy is to be an international player and to make a contribution to security on the global scale.
