ANKARA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — Air Armenia aircraft has made a landing at the Turkish city of Erzurum on the initiative of a pilot for technical reasons, Turkish Transport Minister Binali Yildirim said.

“The aircraft made a technical landing at Erzurum. This means that the pilot asks for it at his wish,” the Anatolia news agency quoted the transport minister as saying on Monday.

Meanwhile, the exact reasons for the landing are not available yet. CNN reports according to certain data, the airliner made a forced landing by fighters.

Local television says the check is being conducted aboard the aircraft, which carries humanitarian aid to the Syrian city of Aleppo. According to certain reports, previously Armenia asked Turkey for overflying permit and was warned about the check.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry reported that if no violations were revealed, the aircraft would continue the flight.

Spokesman to the Armenian Foreign Ministry Tigran Balaian noted that the landing in Turkey was not a surprise for Armenia. “The landing of the aircraft, carrying humanitarian cargoes to the Syrian city of Aleppo, was made routinely and as previously agreed,” the Armenian diplomat said.
