Strengthening ties with the UK to improve defence capabilities

Australia's Minister for Defence Kevin Andrews met with his UK's Secretary of State for Defence, Michael Fallon for the second time this year."

Australia's Minister for Defence Kevin Andrews has met with his United Kingdom counterpart Michael Fallon for the second time this year. 

The first meeting was held in Sydney in February as part of the Australia-United Kingdom Ministerial Consultations (AUKMIN).

Australia has a long standing close association with the United Kingdom and the two countries have worked together on security issues.

The purpose of these talks is to provide an opportunity to reiterate the significance of the bilateral relationship and create opportunities to improve collaboration between the respective armed forces. Discussions about maritime capacity and and up and coming defence technologies were also on the agenda.

"This partnership has been forged in adversity," said Mr Andrews.

Both countries are preparing to deliver policy papers. The Australian Defence White Paper and the United Kingdom Strategic Defence and Security Review will come out later this year.

The minister also added that this visit is timely because the insights from these talks could be included in the documents. 

Australia and the United Kingdom are working together to address the volatile situation in the Middle East and extremism at home.

"Australia and the United Kingdom have an enduring strategic partnership and are committed to working together to promote our shared agenda of enhancing security and prosperity in an increasingly challenging global environment," said the minister.

Mr Andrews also met with the Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, Vernon Coaker.
