State Dept: Reports That US Weighing Options to Pull Back Troops in Eastern Europe Not True

NBC reported, citing current and former US officials, that Washington was allegedly prepared to offer scaling back the number of American troops and military drills conducted in Eastern Europe during the upcoming bilateral security talks with Moscow.

The proposal was said to be dependent on whether Russia agrees to reduce alleged military activity near Ukraine’s border, as Moscow has repeatedly pointed out it is free to rotate military units within its territory.

”It is not accurate that the US administration is developing options for pulling back US forces in Eastern Europe,” a senior State Department official said during a conference call on Friday.
