Prime Minister Liz Truss believes rising energy bills are a price worth paying for ensuring Britain's long-term security, PA Media reports.
She insists that she will not urge Britons to save money on their energy consumption this winter.
They want Truss's multibillion-pound guarantee to keep average annual household bills from exceeding 2,500 pounds, but the country is already feeling the pain of rising inflation.
Truss said Britain cannot jeopardize our security for the sake of cheap energy.
French President Emmanuel Macron has called for a 10 percent cut in energy consumption in the coming months as the EU asks member states to reduce consumption this winter.
