British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has given a major speech on foreign policy at Wednesday London's Mayor Easter Banquet in which she said “geopolitics is back” and called for a reboot in the free world's approach to tackling global aggressors in the wake of the Ukraine crisis.

The secretary started by saying that recent months have shown the deep resilience of the human spirit and of free societies, “faced with appalling barbarism and war crimes, which we’d hoped had been consigned to history, the free world has united behind Ukraine in its brave fight for freedom and self-determination”.

“Those who think they can win through oppression, coercion or invasion are being proved wrong by this new stand on global security – one that not only seeks to deter, but also ensures that aggressors fail”.
