Logistics and logistics were key factors in the purchase of a UAV that could carry out airstrikes in Afghanistan.
But now the U.K. has been caught in the crossfire between Washington and London, where a U-K.
military helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan.
The British Ministry of Defense says it has “no knowledge” that the UAV was shot from British territory, but it did not rule out the possibility.
The U.N. has called for an investigation.
The Pentagon has repeatedly called for a thorough investigation.
In an internal memo, the Pentagon’s deputy chief of staff for operations, David Deptula, said the U-k.
“was not aware of any incidents of British military aircraft being shot down by foreign fighters.”
The Pentagon also said the pilot was killed in an accident that occurred after he and his partner flew to a landing strip in Afghanistan, which is not a Uralvagonzavod base.
British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has been trying to calm tensions between Washington, London and London by saying that British jets could be deployed in Afghanistan to support U.A.E.-led operations against the Taliban and other insurgents.
The incident has further complicated U.B.C. plans to establish a drone base in the region.
A spokesman for British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, told reporters that the Foreign Office was investigating the incident, but that no decisions have been made yet.
