The media reports suggesting that a foreign military base was established in Azerbaijan are groundless and untrue, said Ramiz Tahirov, deputy defense minister, commander of Air Force of Azerbaijan, July 21.


He was commenting on some media reports which said that allegedly a military base of Turkish Armed Forces was created in the territory of Azerbaijan.

Tahirov said that according to the protocol earlier approved by Azerbaijan’s president, a building located in the Gyzyl Sherg military town, used since ’90s, was rented to the office of military attache of Turkey in Azerbaijan.

The protocol makes it possible for the renter to carry out repair and reconstruction works in that building, added Tahirov.
