During a September 22 meeting, US Army General, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milli asked Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov if Vladimir Putin was ready to provide Russian military bases in Central Asia for the needs of the Pentagon. This is reported by the American edition of The Wall Street Journal.
We are talking about Russian bases in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, which the Americans could use during the fight against terrorists, including in Afghanistan, which they recently abandoned. However, Mark’s colleague Millie left his question unanswered.
It is reported that the American general raised this topic at the request of members of the National Security Council of US President Joe Biden.
The Pentagon, however, does not officially confirm that this issue was really discussed during the meeting between Milli and Gerasimov, The Wall Street Journal admits.
