ANKARA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — The Armenian plane with humanitarian aid for Syria that was ordered to land in Turkey for an examination has left Erzurum for Aleppo.
The plane stayed in Turkey for about five hours, local television reported on Monday, October 15.
The Armenian Airlines plane landed at Erzurum earlier in the day at Turkey’s demand for an inspection of its cargo. The local authorities said it was a technical landing and it had been requested by the pilot himself.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said Yerevan had informed Ankara about the flight in advance and Turkey agreed on condition that it would inspect the cargo.
“We checked the plane and allowed it to continue its trip,” Arinc said.
The An-12 plane is carrying 1,400 food sets that were examined and loaded back. Security was tightened at the airport and around the plane.
