US military did not carry out operations in Russian territorial waters - spokesman

The United States did not carry out operations in Russian territorial waters, the US military said on Saturday after Russia said it had chased away a U.S. submarine in Russian waters in the Pacific.

"There is no truth to the Russian claims of our operations in their territorial waters," US military spokesman Captain Kyle Raines said in a statement.

"I will not comment on the precise location of our submarines but we do fly, sail, and operate safely in international waters," the statement added.
