Western media are carefully studying the reports of the Turkish media that allegedly between Moscow and Ankara are behind-the-scenes consultations on the possible deployment of a Russian military base in Turkey. Recently the Turkish newspaper Haberturk posted information that caused quite a stir in a staff-NATO apartment. According to the publication, under the contract for the supply to Turkey of anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) S-400 Russia can place on Turkish territory its military base. And although the Minister of foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu has denied this information, in a staff-NATO apartment on-former prevails voltage: here I do not know how far can the military cooperation between Turkey and Russia

Haberturk newspaper quoted the statement of the head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov about the imminent signing with Ankara agreement on military-technical cooperation. In accordance with this agreement, Russia may request a base in Turkey and place its military personnel on it before transferring the C-400.

According to experts, Ankara, gradually distancing themselves from NATO, is rapidly moving closer to Moscow. Turkish media write about Ankara's interest in ensuring security of air space along the Crimea - Black sea - Turkey — Syria axis together with Russia. Turkish media also reported that Erdogan is very upset with Donald trump because he immediately after his election to the post of President of the United States gave its approval for the supply of heavy weapons to Kurdish rebels in Syria, which Ankara sees as terrorists. And although recently the trump reversed the decision, and the precipitate in bilateral relations remain.

Moreover, despite the termination of the supply of arms to the Kurds, the Pentagon continues to cooperate with them. Turkey with the help of the S-400 expects to prevent operations carried out by the Central command of the United States together with Kurdish people's self-defense Units.

Moreover, the exploration of Turkey report: States continue to have close contact with the Syrian Kurds. The Pentagon on the one hand, provides significant support to the Kurds of Syria from the air, on the other — supports the Kurdish rebels with means of technical intelligence that can neutralize the Turkish armed forces.

As for the report on the possible deployment of a Russian military base in Turkey, Turkish foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu categorically denied this version. Thus, in the headquarters of NATO, while we can breathe a sigh of relief: Turkey officially denied reports on Russian military base. But the tension between Ankara and Brussels persists, because the North Atlantic Alliance does not know how far military-technical cooperation between Turkey and Russia can go.
