This did not come about because of any "war", but due to the confrontation between the US and the Soviet Union called the CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS. The US agitation over the missiles in Cuba was matched by Soviet agitation over the missiles in Turkey and the Soviets agreed that they would withdraw their weapons from Cuba if the US did similarly in Turkey.

US President Kennedy did not agree to removing missiles from Turkey due to any war. This act was part of the agreement to end the Cuban missile crisis. The Soviet Union agreed to remove its missiles from Cuba. And as part of the arrangement, the US removed missiles from Turkey.

Did President Kennedy remove nuclear missiles from Turkey to resolve a crisis?

The placement of U.S. nuclear missiles in Turkey is thought to have provoked the Cuban Missile Crisis. Missiles in Turkey were close enough to strike Moscow, so Russia placed armaments in Cuba, which was within striking distance of U.S. soil. The Missile Crisis, began on October 14th 1962. Robert Kennedy said, during negotiations with the Russians that the missiles would be removed within a short time after the crisis ended. The Missile Crisis ended on October 28th of 62 and the missiles were quietly taken out of turkey some time after April 24th 1963.


What are some of the reasons for the Soviet placement of missiles in Cuba?

The Soviets already knew that the US had nuclear missiles in Turkey, placing nuclear missiles in Cuba would simply achieve nuclear parity.
