Germany is free to withdraw troops from Turkey’s Incirlik, Turkish minister says | Reuters


ISTANBUL Germany is free to withdraw its troops stationed at Turkey’s Incirlik air base if it wants to, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday, adding Berlin should drop its “patronising approach” to Ankara.

Cavusoglu made the comments in an interview with private broadcaster NTV.


Germany said on Wednesday it was considering moving the roughly 250 troops deployed at Incirlik to Jordan because Ankara refuses to grant German lawmakers access to the site. Turkish officials have told Reuters the visit by lawmakers would not be appropriate at the moment.
