Macron’s return to the Élysée Palace has been greeted with considerable relief by France’s allies and partners. But these countries may soon be reminded that it is not always easy to work with Macron. Read the new #StrategicComment ⬇️ iiss.org/publications/s…
‘The underlying principles of the Integrated Review are valid, but we have seen in the last few months that some of our assumptions are not correct. Our focus is now on the resilience and adaptability of our system’ @FirstSeaLord | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘The best hope we have for peace, prosperity and security rests on an international community united against an isolated autocracy … Nations that work so well together ashore can work together at sea’ @FirstSeaLord | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘We are seeing an unprecedented pace of technological change. We need to be at the forefront of that change or we will be found wanting’ @FirstSeaLord | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘We must stand firm, we can’t stand still, we need to adapt … As one of the most capable navies in the NATO, we have an obligation to reflect this in our future posture’, urges @FirstSeaLord | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
On the importance of alliances and partnerships, @FirstSeaLord highlights the convening power of the Carrier Strike Group 21 deployment, ‘the ultimate platform that can flex across the full spectrum of hard to soft power’ | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
Royal Navy is critical in showing the UK’s commitment to the rules-based system, and willingness to work with different navies. ‘We clearly focus on NATO and other partners, but we are not constrained by them’ | @FirstSeaLord #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘Events in Ukraine reinforce conclusions of UK Integrated Review: it warned of risk of state-on-state conflict, foresaw importance of alliances, need for innovation and called for joined-up government approach’ | @FirstSeaLord #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘Russian losses in Ukraine bring home awful reality of state-on-state war. Light, low signature Ukrainian forces have been extremely effective against armoured vehicles and tanks of the Russian Army’, reflects @FirstSeaLord | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘The maritime contribution to our national security is inescapably important right now’ @JSHeappey | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘Is the answer to projecting naval power ever bigger ships and ever bigger submarines? Is there room, alongside the Carrier Strike Group vision, to deploy dispersible, more lethal platforms?’ @JSHeappey | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘The case for naval power is clear, but the challenge is what sort and how much of it’ @JSHeappey | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘There’s a danger that this year we focus exclusively on the Euro-Atlantic, but that would be a massive mistake as we have a duty to compete for influence in the Middle East, the Pacific, the Caribbean and beyond’ @JSHeappey | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
What’s happened in the last 3 months has brought the Integrated Review, highlighting risks of state-on-state conflict, into greater focus, although now these are a reality, says UK Minister for the Armed Forces @JSHeappey | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
‘The West must be seen as effective co-authors of a Ukrainian victory over Russia,’ argues @chipmanj as he opens the @FirstSeaLord's #SeaPowerConference and offers a survey of changing global strategic dynamics in the wake of Russia’s invasion go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
Today at the IISS in London we’re hosting the First Sea Lord's #SeaPowerConference – follow along as we share key insights from UK Minister for the Armed Forces @JSHeappey and @FirstSeaLord Admiral Sir Ben Key | #SeaPowerConference go.iiss.org/3y24g9Z
We are looking forward to welcoming @JSHeappey and @FirstSeaLord this morning | #SeaPowerConference 2022 Recordings will be available on our website after the event: go.iiss.org/SPC22
