WSJ: US is interested in the possibility of using Russian military bases in Asia

General Mark Milli, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed with the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov the possibility of using Russian bases in Central Asia by the American military, writes The Wall Street Journal, citing informed sources.

According to sources, this was discussed at a face-to-face meeting in Finland, but Gerasimov did not make any promises to his American colleague.

As the newspaper notes, the reason for the discussion of the issue was the desire of the American administration, after the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, to find new opportunities to track and respond to terrorist threats that may emanate from the region.

At the same time, the publication emphasizes that the general concern about the threat of terrorism does not exclude “political problems” in cooperation between the United States and Russia.
