Russian and Chinese Ships Patrolled ‘Near Alaska’ but Were not ‘a Threat,’ US Officials Say

A Russian and Chinese naval formation patrolled “near Alaska” last week but “was not considered a threat,” U.S. Northern Command said Sunday.

“Air and maritime assets under our commands conducted operations to assure the defense of the United States and Canada,” a NORTHCOM statement to ABC News said, adding that “the patrol remained in international waters and was not considered a threat.”

A U.S. official also told ABC News that the Pentagon had been tracking and expecting this patrol for several weeks, since well before the exercise began. Four U.S. destroyers and P-8 aircraft were also sent to shadow the patrol.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to report on the formation.
