WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Washington has raised its concerns with Moscow over Russian jets that earlier this week passed close to a U.S. destroyer in the Baltic Sea, the White House said on Thursday.

“The Unites States has raised our concerns with the Russians,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at a daily press briefing. “I can tell you that that communication has occurred, and we’ll seek to resolve our differences through well-established military channels.”
