U.S. base 'may move to Azerbaijan'

From Baku Today:

The military base the US plans to withdraw from Uzbekistan may be stationed in Azerbaijan, Russian Nezavisimaya Gazeta newspaper reported.

The Azerbaijan Defense Ministry spokesman Ramiz Malikov, commenting on the possibility of moving the base to Azerbaijani territory, told local ANS TV channel that although the issue is of military nature, ‘it is of political importance’.

“The Ministry therefore cannot express its position on the matter. The issue should be addressed on the state level,” he said.

Deputy Foreign Minister Araz Azimov has said that Azerbaijan has not received any official appeals and the reports on the issue have been released only in some media so far.
