The report, called the “US nuclear weapons in Europe,” indicates that Washington currently has 90 nuclear bombs of the “B 61” variety in Turkey, all on the Incirlik Air Force base, Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper reported on its website on Friday.
The account has been prepared by the US National Resources Defense Council and is based on figures provided last February by the US Air Force.
It says 50 of the B-61 bombs are ready to be loaded onto American bomber planes while the remaining 40 will be loaded onto Turkish planes.
