On Britannia
Monday, 19th July, by Jackson Scott
Good morning to you all, we hope you had a fantastic weekend and stayed somewhat cool yesterday. Not a ton of foreign affairs headlines this weekend but here is what we have.

Leading the Agenda
The International Agreements Committee is meeting today at 11:30 AM.
They will discuss the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The inquiry will focus on a final trade deal.
Britain will be building a space station to monitor concerning actions being taken by Russia and China.
The station will be placed in southern England or Scotland and it will track actions that may be a threat to ‘space-based assets’.
Russia made an unexpected offer recently to the U.S. in regard to military bases to in Central Asia.
As American and NATO troops leave the country, Russian President Putin has offered the Americans military bases in Central Asia to gather intel from Afghanistan.
Under the Radar
News from the World: Chances for the U.S. and their NATO allies to come to an agreement on how to combat China are lessening in number.
News from Parliament: On Thursday, July 22nd the House of Commons will hold a debate on what the government’s top priorities will be at COP26.
