The United States asked Russia for offers of bases to monitor Afghan terror threat

The Pentagon’s top military official was discussing with his Russian counterpart an open offer from Russian President Vladimir Putin to use his military bases in Central Asia to respond to any new terrorist threats in Afghanistan, US officials said.

General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, raised the issue at the request of President Biden’s National Security Council staff at his meeting last Wednesday with Russian Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov, U.S. officials said.
