U.S. and U.K. Defense Leaders Meet at Pentagon

The relationship was reaffirmed and security priorities were discussed.

U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks met with the U.K. National Security Advisor Sir Stephen Lovegrove at the Pentagon this week. They spoke about the trilateral security partnership, which includes Australia, that seeks to maintain peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific.

The U.S. deployed the USS The Sullivans in July to the U.K. Carrier Strike Group 21 to provide the Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth with multi-war defense in the Indo-Pacific.

The U.S. deputy defense secretary also conveyed gratitude for the support the U.K. provided during the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. The commitment to deepening the U.S.-U.K. relationship was expressed by both defense leaders.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Deputy Defense Secretary Hicks as she seeks to strengthen security alliances.
  • For officials in the Pentagon as security and threat assessments are made and maintained around the world.
  • For wisdom for the president and his military advisors as they evaluate necessary steps for the national defense.
