Truss to tell United Nations Britain will no longer be dependent on those who ‘seek to weaponise the global economy’

Prime Minister Liz Truss will tell the United Nations that Britain is no longer strategic dependent on others who want to weaponize the global economy. She also calls for the world to “push back against autoritarian aggression”.

Ms Truss will speak to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, as it gathers in the shadow of large-scale wars in Europe.

She will explain to the representatives her plans for ensuring that the British economy is free of malign interference. This includes increasing energy independence and securing supply chain security.

The prime minister will likely say in her speech: “We are reforming the economy to get Britain moving again.

“The world is free if it has the economic strength and resilience to resist authoritarian aggression and enter a new era in strategic competition.

“We won’t be strategic dependent on those who want to weaponize the global economy.”

Ms Truss will tell the General Assembly, “economic NATO” is the collective action of the G7 and like-minded partners to defend our prosperity and come to the aid any partner being targeted by an aggressive regime.

She will reiterate her commitment to the UK and its allies. This includes increasing defense spending to 3% GDP by 2030.

Expect the prime minister to state: “Just like we are creating a plan of growth at home, so we are also creating a new blueprint for engagement with international communities.

“We will create resilience and collective security, because these are essential for freedom and democracy. We will be a trustworthy, reliable and dynamic partner.

She will add, “This is an important moment in British History, in the History of this Organisation, and in The History of Freedom.”

“The story of 2022 could have been one of an authoritarian state pushing its tanks across the border of a peaceful neighbor and subjugating its citizens.

“It is instead the story of freedom fighting back… But it must not be a single ….

“…Britain is committed to this total.

“We will continue to fight for freedom, sovereignty, and democracy together with our allies and friends around the globe.

“And we will make this new era a time of hope and progress.”

Sky News spoke to Ms Truss on Tuesday about her plans to reduce taxes and promise billions of dollars to consumers to pay their rising energy bills.

She said that the tax cuts would eventually benefit the British economy.
