The Government's National Security Strategy (NSS) is the strategic equivalent to the United States National Security Strategy. The Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) is the strategic equivalent to the United States National Defense Strategy, though it is not limited in scope to Defence matters as is the case in the USA.
