So, on June 13 at the U.S. State Department briefing deputy spokesman Mark Toner consulate office, when asked about the outlook of official Washington's joint exercise of American-Ukrainian forces near the border of the Russian Federation, said that the outlook of the U.S. in Moscow is not interested. Another "hit" came from Baku, there salting the United States said that Washington will support Azerbaijan in the Caspian Sea.
Message from the United States over the exercises in the Black Sea
It all started with the fact that the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a report that docked at the pool of the Black Sea for a role in the Ukrainian-US exercises "Sea Breeze — 2011" U.S. Navy cruiser "Monterey", which is equipped with anti-missile system "Aegis", raises a number of questions. It was reported that "we will not leave without attention to the occurrence of a specific proximity to our borders parts of the U.S. strategic infrastructure and will take such steps as a threat to our security."
At the briefing, said Toner Questions about the exercises and the reaction of the Russian Federation asked a journalist from Ukraine. He said the subsequent: "Well, I think they have a right to their own world view. I'm not going to consider the words Russian Foreign Ministry: I need to know more details about the exercise. But with Ukraine, we have a very close bilateral cooperation, and the teachings of the past fit into the framework of our relations. "
U.S. and Poland
Started making program from the presence of U.S. troops in Poland. Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich and U.S. salting Lee Feinstein signed the contract on the presence of U.S. troops in Poland. Already in 2012, will arrive first the military, and in 2013 the aircraft.
U.S. and Azerbaijan
Washington and Baku to start a new step in security cooperation, it will address, first, the protection of energy infrastructure in the Caspian Sea. Told journalists on June 11 in the U.S. salting Baku Matthew Bryza.
Earlier, Russian salting in Baku Vladimir Dorokhin spoke about the fact that Moscow opposes the construction of a pipeline under the Caspian Sea. He said this on June 8 at a press conference in Baku, commenting on the news about the construction of the gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Azerbaijan. According to him, it can disrupt the ecological status of the sea, and our homeland — the Caspian country. Russian subsequent salting said: "In project Convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea includes an article on the construction of trans-Caspian pipelines. Our homeland and Iran believe that the construction of gas pipelines in the Caspian environmental issues must be negotiated and accepted by all 5th coastal states. " While Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan believe that these issues can be solved only countries involved in the construction pipelines.
For this project, the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline wish to lay on the bottom of the Caspian Sea on the Tengiz-Turkmenbashi-Baku, in other words, Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Azerbaijan. Later on his area of the Azerbaijani want to connect with is actually constructed Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum (Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey), which is one of the major segments of the pipeline system NABUCCO. Negotiations between Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan on this project intensively lobbied the EU and the U.S..
The project NABUCCO (title of the project comes from Giuseppe Verdi's opera "Nabucco", the name of King Nebuchadnezzar II), valued at almost 8 billion. Euro (according to some estimates, its price may rise to 14 billion. euros), includes the construction of a gas pipeline length of 3.3 thousand kilometers, which will connect the source of life — the Caspian region, the Middle East, through Turkey to Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, and further with other countries in Central and Western Europe. As the main resource base for the project are considered Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Iraq, in the future, maybe Iran. Capacity of the pipeline is planned to reach 31 billion. cubic meters of gas per year. Ankara said that NABUCCO is a strategic project for Turkey and he will certainly be realized. In the construction involved: OMV Gas GmbH (Austria), BOTAŞ (Turkey), Bulgargaz (Bulgaria), SNTGN Transgaz SA (Romania), MOL Natural Gas Transmission Company Ltd. (Hungary), RWE AG (Germany).
Another cheerful news came over Afghanistan. It was reported that the South American troops will remain there after 2014. Although discussed in the near future on the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, this promised and Barack Obama during the campaign. Although it was clear that if the United States somewhere came out of a very tough "ask", is that the experience of the Vietnamese use.
As it became clear to journalists English newspaper Guardian, one and a half months of closed-door talks underway Yankees with Kabul to continue military partnership in the area of Afghanistan. NATO and the U.S. are planning to stay in Afghanistan. In principle, and has been informed of this information came: it was suggested that after the 2014 NATO and U.S. military activities actually collapsed (at least the last try) and will sell the Iraq experience. Will be made by the joint US-Afghan base, through which Americans will teach, advise and support the Afghan formation. The main reason for that is here to stay — the danger of Pakistan because "the unmanaged areas of Pakistan reincarnated as a hiding place for terrorists and insurgents." Pakistan to the United States at the present time was the "target" on it often causes strikes, killing "terrorists", provoking the wrath of the official Islamabad.
This year, if the troops will withdraw and then only minor party because there may be a worsening military situation. In addition, Americans have expressed fear at the expense of the state of the Afghan economy. According to the views of the Yankees, he voiced in the report of the Committee on international relations of the Upper House of Parliament, after the final withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the government is waiting for money crisis. In just 10 years izderzhali States on Afghanistan, approximately 18.8 billion. bucks, it's not actually in military spending.
It is clear that the real goal of preserving its own military presence in the region — not the Afghan Mujahideen, the Pakistani "terrorists" or concern about the U.S. economy of Afghanistan. The main objective — is the presence in the strategically fundamental region, which allows the influence of Iran, China, India, Pakistan, Central Asia, Russia.
an be concluded that lasts encasing the Russian Federation as a bear in a den, and all the words of friendship, cooperation — it is a tool of disinformation people of, its authorities before impact. Today the U.S. and NATO — it is for us a new incarnation of Hitler, with their "New World Order". The plan "strangulation" of in the arms of "anaconda" lasts. The only true step in these acts will not trepotnya a violation of our interests, and speedy rearmament of the army and navy. Creating an alternative NATO bloc of countries that are not going to participate in the construction of the "World of the Reich." Our endeavors are supported by Iran, Syria, China, Venezuela, Vietnam, Cuba, we will find recognition in India and Brazil, in Europe, the need to find common interests and rapprochement with Germany.
