Russian Long Range Bombers in Gulf of Mexico ‘Unnecessary’

The United States is not concerned about Russia’s plan to send long range bombers in and around the Gulf of Mexico but considers the action unnecessary, US Department of State Spokesperson Jen Psaki has said. 

“We don’t think that is … a situation in the Western Atlantic and the Eastern Pacific or the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico that warrants additional flights in out of area territory. It doesn’t seem necessary,” Psaki said during a press briefing on Thursday.
She added that as long as Russia continued to be consistent with international law, the United States would recognize the country’s need for routine military training and activity.
“We have noticed an increase in the number of flights near North America and in recent months, any such activity must be consistent with international law conducted with due regard for the rights of other nations and the safety of other aircrafts and of vessels,” Psaki commented.
Earlier on Wednesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the country needed to maintain military presence in the region.
According to Shoigu, Russia’s military presence is essential considering current political situation, provided that sending military bombers to the Gulf region and increasing their military presence was part of the country’s military drills.
