Russia says Air force discuss with to Norwegian island 'is alarming'

Russia says that U.S. armed forces activities on a Norwegian air base are being concerned and possibility destabilizing that a part of the area.

The Russian international Ministry slammed the determination of the U.S. Air drive to send a squadron to the Norwegian island of Jan Mayen in the Arctic in November. The Russian executive additionally expressed concerns to Norway over its work with overseas militaries, according to Reuters.

"The sheer truth of the viable presence of the U.S. Air drive on the island, albeit occasional, is alarming," the Russian international Ministry observed. "We hope Oslo could be liable and much-sighted in constructing its policy within the north and will refrain from actions that undermine regional steadiness and hurt bilateral members of the family."

The Air force conducted a November mission to Jan Mayen to test even if the island's air base may deal with U.S. C-130J super Hercules military transport planes touchdown there.

Moscow's considerations are the latest further pressure on its relationship with Norway. On Feb. four, Russia accused Norway of cutting off Moscow's access to the archipelago of Svalbard, a string of Arctic islands about 500 miles north of Norway's mainland.
