U.S. Ally Blows Off Biden’s Requests To Bar Russian Jets From Its Airspace

  • Egypt, a U.S. ally, has blown off the Biden administration’s requests to shut off its airspace to Russian military flights.
  • The administration repeatedly asked Egypt in February and March to close its airspace to Russian jets. That effectively would block Russia’s access to Syria.
  • Egypt reportedly has not responded to those requests and allows Russian aircraft to cross its land en route to Syria.
