The US military wants to relocate their nuclear bombs from Turkey to Greece.

Retired Turkish Air Force General Erdogan Karakus explained why the USA wants to relocate its Nuclear Atomic Weapons from Turkey to Greece.

Erdogan Karakus, a retired lieutenant-general of the Turkish Air Force, said that “against the background of the events in the Eastern Mediterranean and tensions in Turkish-Greek relations, Athens is seeking to render every support to NATO.

The goal is to obtain Washington’s support, something that was confirmed by a recent visit by a NATO official to Greece’s Araxos Air Base,” Karakuus said. The director of NATO’s Nuclear Policy, Fred Frederickson, visited Greece’s Araxos air base in the Peloponnese, where the sites suitable for storing nuclear weapons are located.

Recalling the “confrontation of US and Russian interests in the Eastern Mediterranean region,” he noted that Washington cannot rely on Turkey anymore in this confrontation.

He also recalled that Albania is currently making efforts to join the EU and NATO, with the USA trying to gain control over part of its sea and air space in an apparent bid to create an exclusive economic zone in the area.

Similar speculations have emerged amid deteriorating relations between Washington and Ankara in the wake of the 2016 failed coup attempt in Turkey, when access to the Incirlik base was temporarily blocked due to Ankara’s fears the US military might be involved in the coup.
