British defense secretary dismisses U.S. concern about force cuts

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Britain's defense secretary on Wednesday sought to dispel U.S. concerns about cuts in his country's defenses, saying it was maintaining and developing a credible capability and urging fellow European NATO members to step up their forces.

"Let me assure you the United Kingdom, like the United States, has no intention of lowering its guard," Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said in a speech before meeting new U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter.
