Russia-Sending additional US troops to the region will not help solve problems

BAGHDAD, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin said on Wednesday that sending additional US troops to the Middle East and boosting Washington's military capabilities in the region would not help the troubled Gulf after the attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.

"We do not believe that these issues are solved by military means and by increasing military capabilities," he said. We proceed with the need to clarify all the details and conduct an objective investigation.

"In any case, not through military means, these problems are solved."

US Defense Secretary Mark Asper announced on Saturday that US President Donald Trump had agreed to send additional troops to the Middle East against the backdrop of an alleged Iranian attack on Saudi Arabia.

Asper said that the United States is sending additional weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to improve their defense capabilities.
