U.S. slams Tu-160 strategic bombers’ arrival

U.S. slams Tu-160 strategic bombers’ arrival”

In that sense, the Chancellor of the Republic, Jorge Arreaza, rejected the statements of the North American Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who described as public waste the military cooperation between Russian Federation and the South American nation. Mr Pompeo said the show of support for socialist President Nicolás Maduro was "two corrupt governments squandering public resources".

Two Russian long-range strategic bombers landed in Venezuela on Monday for what the Venezuelan government said were air force exercises aimed at strengthening the defence of the leftist-ruled South American country.

Recall that Russian Federation sent to Venezuela four military aircraft, including two strategic Tu-160 bombers to conduct a series of exercises. He told reporters Tuesday that such criticism sounds odd from a country "half of whose military budget would be enough to feed the whole of Africa". Russian Federation has long accused the US of attempting to encroach on its backyard through the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as well as intending to disrupt the global balance of power-accusations Washington also levies at Moscow.

President Donald Trump requested $639billion on defence spending from Congress for the 2018 financial year.

However, rough estimates point to a total GDP of around £2.75trillion.

The Russian government also called Mr Pompeo's words "completely inappropriate".

"Russia has placed 7-bellied bombers in Venezuela", - wrote in Facebook Ukrainian journalist Mikhail Golub.

Russian Federation sent about 100 pilots and other personnel along with two Tupolev-160 bombers and two other aircraft to Caracas - generating tensions with the United States and Colombia, countries Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro regularly accuses of plotting to assassinate him.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza called Pompeo's comments "not only disrespectful, but cynical", highlighting the number of military bases the United States owns overseas.

The U.S. hasn't had an ambassador to Venezuela since 2010.
