Britain’s defence strategy will “tilt” toward the Indo-Pacific region where the Royal Navy will have a regular presence in the future, the head of the armed forces has said.

General Sir Nick Carter, chief of the defence staff, said China was a growing great power presenting an opportunity and a “strategic challenge” for the UK.

He said the long-awaited integrated review of Britain’s defence and foreign policy would outline how more military engagement in the Asia-Pacific region was a “no-brainer”.
