LONDON - Britain’s push to reinvent its role on the world stage after Brexit must begin with strengthening the union between its home nations, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Sunday, promising to spread investment across the country.
The government will on Tuesday publish a long-awaited review of foreign policy, defence, security and aid spending, described as Britain’s most comprehensive assessment of its ambitions and place in the world order since the end of the Cold War.
It is expected to make the case for a tilt towards Indo-Pacific nations, where Britain sees trading opportunities for its services-based economy, and will be scrutinised for clues on how ministers plan to approach relations with China and Russia.

Ahead of the report, Johnson said the first step was making sure Britain had a robust economy and a strong union between constituent nations England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
“Our international ambitions must start at home,” he said in a statement.
