Rear Admiral John Kirby briefed reporters and responded to questions on a variety of issues. He said that the “inter-disciplinary cell” comprised of people from the FBI, intelligence, and the military being sent to Nigeria was not a U.S. military operation but rather one to advise and assist the Nigerian authorities in recusing the more than 250 schoolgirls who were kidnapped. He also called for the removal of Russian troops from the eastern and southern borders of Ukraine. close
