Turkey may store S-400 missiles in Azerbaijan

Summary of Disinformation

Turkey may temporarily store Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems in Azerbaijan.

 

Disproof

This article suggests that in order to escape sanctions threatened by the US if it continues with its purchase of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, Turkey is considering temporarily storing them in Azerbaijan. In fact, Turkey hasn’t put forward a compromise to defuse tensions with the U.S. over its plans to buy the advanced missile-defense system from Russia by stationing it in a third country, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said late Tuesday. Moreover, discussions with NATO and the US to find a solution have not yet taken place, although Turkey is open. “Other than that, no middle-way formula has appeared on the agenda or was considered, but such hearsay is still floated in Ankara and beyond,” Cavusoglu said.
