U.S. Envoy Tells Telegraph Further U.K. Defense Cuts a Concern

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- Louis Susman, the outgoing U.S. ambassador to the U.K., said further cuts to Britain’s defense spending would raise alarm for the Washington administration, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The U.S. would have to “review the situation” if the U.K. were to make additional reductions in spending on top of cuts agreed in 2010, as it would jeopardize the nation’s defense capabilities, Susman, 75, told the newspaper in an interview. The US. government is pushing Britain to continue defense spending at 2 percent of gross domestic product, he said.
