Russia summons US army envoy after ship incident

The Russian Defense Ministry summoned on Friday United States Defense Attaché to Moscow, Rear Admiral David Manero, over the incident USS Chafee caused by allegedly trying to enter the Euroasian country's border in the Sea of Japan.

The ministry said it made Manero aware of Moscow's "position" about the ship's attempt to "violate the state border of the Russian Federation in the Peter the Great Bay area." It went on to slam the sailors' actions as "unprofessional" and against the agreement the US and Russia have on the prevention of conflicts on the high seas.

Meanwhile, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated said US President Joe Biden's administration does not have any information on the issue and refused to comment further on it.
