UK, US defense secretaries discuss “increasing assertiveness from Kremlin”

UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson has held his first bilateral meeting with his US counterpart, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, in London on Friday, the UK Ministry of Defense reported in an official statement.

STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 11, ARTSAKHPRESS: Both have just returned from NATO and counter-Daesh Ministerial meetings in Brussels, where the alliance agreed to adapt its command structure to better reflect the security environment, announcing the establishment of two new headquarters: an Atlantic Command and a Logistics Command.

The officials discussed issues regarding the fight against IS in Iraq and Syria, as well as “assertiveness from the Kremlin”.

“The pair also discussed the increasing assertiveness from the Kremlin, as the UK stands side by side with US and NATO allies,” reads the statement.
