Over one thousand American military men from the 10th Mountain Division (based near Syracuse, New York) are deploying in Middle Asia. Currently, the soldiers are being quartered on the territory of countries of the CIS, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, the Washington Post reported. The newspaper obtained this information from reliable sources in the Pentagon. It was also added that the troops, which had been brought to the post-Soviet territory of the Middle Asia were only the first of the USA land forces that are also going to be brought into the region. As it is planned, the American forces in the Uzbekistan and Tajikistan republics will take part in the land operation on the territory of Afghanistan. Neither the authorities of the mentioned republics nor the officials of Russia or the States made any comments on the matter.
