The United States is concerned about India’s involvement in Russian military exercises
The press secretary for the White House, Karine Jean-Pierre, expressed concern about India’s plans to participate in joint military drills with Russia on Tuesday. The United States is concerned about India’s plans to participate in the exercises (Aug 30).
Even though Russia is currently engaged in a costly conflict in Ukraine, Moscow announced plans last month to organize military drills called “Vostok” (East) from August 30 to September 5.
According to the statement made by China’s defense ministry, the military drills will likely involve participation from China, India, Belarus, Mongolia, Tajikistan, and other countries.
When asked about India’s involvement, Jean-Pierre told reporters, as President Joe Biden flew to Pennsylvania, that the United States was concerned about any country participating in military exercises with Russia while it is at war with Ukraine.
