PM’s Defence Lecture
The PMOS quoted from the lecture that the Prime Minister gave today in Plymouth. He said that the Prime Minister wanted to set out the approach to defence issues and the redefining of that approach. It had been governed as much by values as by interests. It had been based on two major alliances, America on the one hand, and Europe on the other. It had combined hard and soft parts; in other words we have been in the forefront of the fight against terrorism, for example beating Milosovic, helping prevent Sierra Leone falling into the hands of gangsters, all of which have required military action.
