The three nations will form a group to enable more efficient sharing of defence information in a thinly veiled bid to counter China.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “At 2200 BST tonight the Prime Minister will make an on camera address, alongside US President Biden and Australian Prime Minister Morrison, on a strategic national security announcement.”

Mr Biden is set to host the leaders of Australia, India and Japan at the White House next week.

It comes after Mr Johnson wielded the axe in a brutal Cabinet reshuffle that today saw Dominic Raab demoted and Gavin Williamson fired.
