US and Swedish military discussed in Washington containment Russia

49
The heads of the US and Swedish defense ministers discussed the expansion of defense cooperation in the context of "deterring Russia's provocative behavior and the campaign against the IS", reports RIA News Post press service of the Pentagon.




"Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist met in Washington with the head of the Pentagon Ashton Carter and his first deputy, Bob Wark," - said in a statement.

During the meeting with Work, "an increase in defense cooperation was discussed, including the growing containment of Russia's provocative behavior and the campaign to combat IS."

“At the meeting of the Swedish minister with Carter, the containment of those who might try to threaten our partners and allies in Europe was discussed,” the press service reported without specifying specific countries or organizations.

In addition, according to the release of the Swedish Ministry of Defense, "Hultqvist and Carter signed a statement of intent on defense cooperation."

The agency recalls that in May “the United States, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Iceland adopted a joint statement expressing concern about Russia's growing military presence in the Baltic Sea region, its nuclear capabilities, sudden exercises and provocative actions of its aircraft and warships” .

        If Russia really pursued an aggressive military policy, then your military departments would have no time to discuss its containment.

        The mentality of the inhabitants of the jungle. He looked in the eyes - it means a threat.
        If there really was a real threat, then at such meetings only an emergency evacuation plan for the ocean would be worked out.

      With the same success they could discuss the origin of sunspots ...!?
      Or do Swedes haunt the laurels of Charles XII? So there was still a battle near Poltava.
      Well, history does not teach anything
      The Yankees, it’s understandable, haven’t received their faces from Russia yet, but all the rest ...?

        discussed increased defense cooperation, including the growing containment of Russia's provocative behavior
        Yesterday the article was about the complete readiness of the Sashiks to ensure their flights and passage of ships in the north. I assumed that it would be as always - "we will print bucks and give, and you do it!" That's what they agree on. True, I also assumed that the Norwegians and Canadians would not pull the entire north (even together with the Swedes), this had to be prepared 70 years ago. And now just freeze the aircraft carrier and change the crew on watch.

    ..I'm thinking .. the navel will not loose the navel on the mattresses because of the Atlantic to "restrain" us? laughing the Swedes are close, and in which case grief will quickly sniff .. but how are the mattresses harnessed for the allies? while they are going to help, the same Sweden will already be equipped with vaseline on its karachki .. laughing mattresses know about it perfectly and insolently "soyuznichkov" substitute .. they will serve something overseas .. bully

    "The USA, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden ... expressed concern about the growing military presence of Russia in the Baltic Sea region"

    With the Vikings, the Vikings and other berserks, everything is clear ... but what side is the USA here? It seems like Russia is not worried about drug trafficking on the border between the USA and Mexico, it does not worry about the problem of niggas in the harlem. Can eggplant want a second world prize?

    I have been repeating for a long time that Sweden is a state transferred to Europe and a bridgehead for the United States. For the United States, winning the war is an empty phrase. In the history of the USA WW1 is a "good war", the USA "won" from WW2.
    Without Sweden (and Switzerland), it would be impossible to earn money in a war and drag out a war.
    Sweden will inevitably be followed by Finland.
