The Pentagon could not provide any information concerning media reports that Washington was going to relocate nukes from Turkey’s Incirlik airbase to Romania.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Department of Defense has declined to comment on media reports that Washington was preparing to move over 20 warheads from Turkey’s Incirlik airbase to the US base at Romania’s Deveselu.

“It is US policy to neither confirm nor deny the presence or absence of nuclear weapons at any general or specific location,” Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump told Sputnik on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, the Brussels-based EurActiv online news outlet cited sources as saying that the United States was getting ready to relocate the warheads from Turkey to Romania. The move was explained as stemming from increasingly tense relations with Turkey following the failed July 15 coup attempt.
