The Prime Minister is expected to say: “Just as we are building our growth plan back home, we are also developing a new blueprint for our engagement with the world.
“We will build resilience and collective security – because they are so important to freedom and democracy. We will be a reliable, trustworthy and dynamic partner.”
She will add: “This is a defining moment in British history, in the history of this institution, and in the history of freedom.
“The story of 2022 could be the story of an authoritarian state rolling its tanks across the border of a peaceful neighbor and subjugating its people.
“Instead, it’s a story about freedom fighting back… But this isn’t a one time….
“… Britain’s commitment to this is complete.
“Together with our friends and allies around the world, we will continue to fight for freedom, sovereignty and democracy.
“And we will define this new era as one of hope and progress.”
On Tuesday, Ms Truss told Sky News she was ready to fall out of favor with the tax cuts and promised billions of pounds would help consumers pay their rising energy bills.
