Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not comment on the information on Turkey's plans to deploy military bases in Azerbaijan. According to him, these are only rumors.
“We haven't talked about this issue and we're commenting on rumors,” & mdash; Lavrov said at a press conference held after talks between the Foreign Minister and his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makei.
It has previously emerged that the Turkish Armed Forces may have several military bases in Azerbaijan. This was stated by the President of the Republic, Recep Erdogan. He did not name the exact date of construction of the bases.
Erdogan visited Azerbaijan this week. He negotiated with his colleague Ilham Aliyev. The presidents signed an alliance agreement and jointly traveled through the Nagorno-Karabakh regions, which came under Azerbaijan's control last year.
