AND WHILE THE NA­TION SQUAB­BLES

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Rus­sia is look­ing to ex­pand its mil­i­tary pres­ence and has its eye on Cuba and other Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries. De­fense Min­is­ter Sergei Shoigu said Rus­sia has come up with a list of coun­tries where it’s con­sid­er­ing open­ing mil­i­tary bases. They in­clude Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela and Viet­nam,” writes Franco Or­donez, a reporter with Mc­Clatchy News who based his re­port on in­for­ma­tion from RIA Novosti, Rus­sia’s state-owned news agency.

“The talks are un­der way,” Mr. Shoigu ad­vised re­porters in Moscow.
