This week on Sitrep with Kate Gerbeau and Christopher Lee:
The man who holds Britain’s most senior military position in NATO says the UK can expect an enhanced role in the Alliance after Brexit. General Sir James Everard is NATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander and has been speaking to our reporter Rob Olver.
Fighting continues in Libya. Writer and researcher Mary Fitzgerald updates us on the progress made by renegade General Khalifa Haftar.
In North Korea, leader Kim Jong-un celebrates another missile test, but what has come of those stalled talks with President Trump?
President Trump has vetoed a bill that would have ended America's role in Yemen's civil war. Up until now Congress has supported the President, so why has it changed it's mind.
And mine hunting with the Royal Navy in the Arabian Gulf. Simon Newton reports from on-board the oldest ship in the fleet; HMS Ledbury which is taking part in Exercise Artemis Trident.
Kate and Christopher are joined this week by Professor Michael Clarke, Security Analyst and Chairman of CoJit.
