U.S., U.K. plan trans-governmental national security group

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain and the United States are to create a new joint forum to assess long-term threats to their national security, a British government source said Monday.

The launch of the new national security strategy board is expected to be announced during U.S. President Barack Obama’s state visit to Britain, starting Tuesday.

“The U.S. and UK already work closely together on many national security issues. The new board will allow us to look ahead and develop a shared view of emerging challenges, how we should deal with them, and how our current policy can adapt to longer-term developments,” the government source said.

“Sharing the knowledge and insights of the experts in London and Washington will help both governments look ahead in an increasingly complex and fast-moving world,” the source said.

The new board will bring together senior foreign and defense policy officials from London and Washington. It will be headed by the U.S. and British national security advisers, respectively Tom Donilon and Peter Ricketts.
