Tories: Hague calls for closer Asia links

Britain must forge closer links with the countries of Asia and the Middle East, shadow foreign secretary William Hague will tell a thinktank. While stressing that the US remains “our indispensable ally”, Mr Hague will argue that more of the UK’s “political weight” should be shifted towards developing links with emerging global economic and political powers such as China and India. And he will call for a “concerted national effort” to develop closer ties with friendly states in the Middle East and North Africa to help counter the threat of international Islamist terrorism and resolve tensions in the region.
