Vice President Pence To Visit Estonia Georgia Montenegro In Show Of Support

The United States' supersonic bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula along with fighters from Japan and South Korea, the US Pacific Air Forces announced in a statement on Sunday. He noted that terrorism was not the only threat, however, referring to North Korean and Iranian missile testing.

Pence was expected to highlight the US commitment to the Western Balkans and stress the need for good governance, political reforms, and rule of law in the region. The secretary of defense had been there recently, and it builds upon the vice president's trip when we addressed some of these leaders at the Munich Security Conference when he met with the three Baltic presidents then. We will no longer allow this to continue.

Russia said last week that the staffing levels must be brought to 455 by September, the same number of Russian diplomats in Washington. "We stand with our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in our commitment to your security", Pence said at the headquarters of Estonia's defense forces.

It is seen as retaliation for new United States sanctions against Russian Federation, which were punishment for the annexation of Crimea and for interference in last year's USA election.

US Vice President Mike Pence said he hopes the decision to place sanctions on Russia will prompt "different behavior" from Moscow, as President Vladimir Putin announced the USA would have to cut 755 diplomatic staff from Russia, Newsweek reports.

He met the presidents of the three Baltic states in Estonia at the start of a trip that will include stops in Georgia and Montenegro - all countries that feel pressure from Moscow - as Russian Federation responded to USA sanctions by demanding that 755 U.S. diplomats and support staff in the country stop work. "We had such hope that the situation would change, but judging by the situation that will not be soon". "I decided that it is time for us to show that we will not leave anything unanswered", Putin explained. "As for other possible measures, or whether it is a lot or not, this is quite sensible from the point of view of the work of the diplomatic department".

Analysts said Russian Federation would not be too concerned by the new sanctions.

Pence said Sunday that he hopes that slapping new sanctions on Russian Federation would lead Russian Federation to change its behavior with regard to Ukraine and end its support for Iran and North Korea.

Pence said during the interview on Sunday that North Korea's actions are "unacceptable" and that "the era of strategic patience is over".

In explaining the objective of the trip, a senior Trump administration official told reporters last week, "This builds upon the administration's engagement".

"As a conservative Republican, he will also try to convince these nervous allies, who really do look to us for protection, that the incessant "noise" in Washington about the Trump administration playing footsies with the Russians does not mean that the U.S. will sacrifice their interests to a Moscow-Washington agreement", said Naimark, who also serves as fellow at the Hoover Institution.

"The US will check any attempt to use force". As former USA ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul pointed out on NBC's Today show, it will also hurt Russia in other ways, such as applications for visas to travel to the US. Those actions were in response to Russia's election meddling, as well as its continued military aggression in Ukraine.
