Novinite: U.S. Reportedly Transferring Nukes from Turkey to Romania
With relations between Washington and Ankara worsening after last month's coup attempt, the United States has started moving nuclear weapons from Turkey to Romania, EurActiv.com reported on Thursday, citing two independent sources.
A source has told the online media outlet that “the US-Turkey relations had deteriorated so much following the coup that Washington no longer trusted Ankara to host the weapons”.
According to that source, the U.S. were transferring nuclear weapons to Deveselu air base in Romania.
Another source has told EurActiv that the transfer of nuclear weapons from Turkey to Romania is “very challenging in technical and political terms.”
EurActiv has sought comment from all the parties involved.
