Pentagon spokesman arrives in Uzbekistan to discuss "border security" issues

57

The United States is not backing down on its goal of deploying "anti-terrorist forces" near the Afghan border. deploy a military base in neighboring states. According to the US Embassy in Uzbekistan, Assistant Secretary of Defense Christopher Mayer has arrived in Tashkent.

The Pentagon spokesman has already held a number of meetings with the Uzbek authorities during his visit. It is officially stated that Mayer discussed "issues of bilateral cooperation and border security", other details are not given. Unofficially, the visit may conceal a US demand for the deployment of an American military base on the territory of Uzbekistan.



Earlier, the American media, citing military sources, asserted that the Pentagon intends to hold talks with the Uzbek authorities on the deployment of "anti-terrorist forces" on the territory of the republic, which could operate in Afghanistan.

Despite the fact that Tashkent has already refused Washington once, stating that the country's constitution and military doctrine do not provide for and prohibit the deployment of foreign troops, the United States apparently decided to try again, since the topic is "sore" for the Americans.

After fleeing from Afghanistan, the United States lost all opportunities to operate on its territory, and neighboring countries, together with Washington, refused to deploy American military bases. They now have to act from Qatar, and this is very unprofitable in all respects. There was information, again from the Western media, that the Americans allegedly even tried to persuade Russia to let them go to one of their bases in Tajikistan or Kyrgyzstan.

So this visit of a Pentagon representative may conceal another attempt to persuade the Uzbek authorities to meet the American military halfway. Whether this is so, or is it a simple "courtesy visit" in the framework of solving everyday problems, time will tell.

      This is how common borders will appear, and you can consider such visits not hostile to Russia, but for now hint at migrants, like if anything, send the Dzhamshuts with the Ravshans to the States.

              The main creditor of Uzbekistan is the PRC. Chinese expansion into Central Asia is proceeding systematically and inexorably. There is no chance for the United States to whip out a place for a base from the Basmachi. The place is taken by another hegemon.

                  If possible, then I will answer you for it. Maybe he put it this way after the recent decision of the Uzbek authorities to rehabilitate one of the leaders of the Basmak gangs - this name has developed historically, not least because of their atrocities not only against the soldiers of the Red Army, but also against the peaceful local population!
                  How can you name, for example, those people in Kazakhstan who recently decided to justify and make national heroes of the collaborators who fought against the Red / Soviet Army in the ranks of the fascist troops?

              For sure. Few of the Pentagon know Uzbek. or like this:
              We haven't put things in order in your country yet. It's time to start, gentlemen ... Uzbeks. (We haven’t put things in order in your country yet. It's time to start, gentlemen ... Uzbeks.)

                In the United States, the Uzbek diaspora is one of the most numerous of the former Soviet republics. Do you think there is not a single Uzbek in the same Pentagon yet? Our former Pentagons and other CIAs are specially recruited around the world, this is a well-known fact too.

            Sergey, how will this base be supplied? Carrying fuels and lubricants, spare parts, etc. will be by air? There only fuel (of which there is a shortage in the RU) must be shipped in trains. And this is a transit from the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan - there will be no American bases there. hi
