Britain and Australia

Yesterday, the Prime Minister met virtually with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, strengthening the historic partnership of Britain and Australia in security, democracy and trade.  

  • Our unique relationship with Australia is built on the deep bonds between our peoples and sustained by our shared commitment to promoting peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. 
  • That is why the UK has committed £25 million to strengthen Indo-Pacific resilience in cyberspace and maritime security, as well as intensifying cooperation in trade and reaffirming our commitment to AUKUS alongside the United States. 
  • The Prime Ministers also discussed the concerning situation on Ukraine’s border. As Russian military build-up shows no signs of slowing, both nations emphasised their unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and agreed on the need for urgent de-escalation to avoid tragic humanitarian cost.   
  • Our nations are forging a new partnership fit for the next century and grounded in our shared priorities in democracy, security, and free and fair trade.
