Azerbaijan Denies Giving Israel Air-Base Access

Azerbaijan's government has denied a report saying that Baku has granted Israel access to Azerbaijani bases that could be used in potential air strikes by Israel against nuclear targets in Azerbaijan's neighbor Iran.

The article in "Foreign Policy" magazine, titled "Israel's Secret Staging Ground," quotes unnamed U.S. government sources as saying Azerbaijan is providing Israeli fighter planes with access to airfields near the Iranian border.

A spokesman for the Azerbaijani president's office, Ali Hasanov, rejected the report on March 29, saying outside forces were trying to foment trouble between Iran and Azerbaijan.

Iranian-Azerbaijani relations have been strained since reports last month said Azerbaijan had purchased some $1.6 billion of weapons from Israel.

Israel, which views a potential Iranian nuclear bomb as a threat to its existence, says military strikes on Iran remain an option.

Azerbaijan knows pretty damn well that Baku will burn to the ground if they help the Israelis or the Americans

I hope Mr. Saakashvili is smart enough to realize the same

Azerbaijan's threat to the region is growing. It is time to bring up the issue of redrawing Azerbaijan's current borders, and return to Iran what was taken from them.

Azerbaijan was, and is an invention which needs to be corrected.
