HMS Queen Elizabeth will deploy to the Middle East and Pacific on her maiden operational mission
British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson confirmed in a speech Monday morning that the Royal Navy's HMS QueenElizabeth will sail into waters that are the subject of dispute between China and other nations.
Deployment of the new aircraft carrier, which is likely to take place in 2021, will also include two squadrons of F-35 stealth jets to "stand up to those who flout worldwide law".
Williamson also said Britain would spend 65 million pounds in "offensive cyber", and bring two new naval vessels into service for operations from crisis support to conflict.
"The idea that our membership of the European Union restricts us is the purest nonsense", Labour MP Chris Leslie said.
The report said Williamson will highlight close military ties between Washington and London and will support U.S. President Donald Trump's call for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to increase military spending in the face of what he called Russian provocations.
He also said the country's planned exit from the European Union on March 29 had brought the United Kingdom its "greatest opportunity" to strengthen its global presence.
"Our adversaries are increasingly using cyber-attacks, subversion and information operations to challenge us and the rules-based global order", he added. "A moment when we must strengthen our global presence, enhance our lethality, and increase our mass", Williamson will say.
