Turkey: Russia Can Use Incirlik (NATO Airbase) If It Wants To

  • Game over for US-Pentagram+NATO. They have lost the land bridge between Europe-Asia ie. Turkey, Asia Minor. It also means the West will be losing their hegemony over the Middle East very soon.

    Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says Russia can use the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, if it wants. Yildirim denied media reports that Moscow pressured Ankara to use the base to conduct airstrikes against Daesh in Syria. He said no such request has been made so far, but, Russia can use the base as several other countries do. Russia and Turkey have recently moved to mend ties that soured in November last year, after Ankara downed a Russian warplane over Syria. Earlier this month, Ankara apologized to Moscow for the incident. The presidents of the two countries also met in Moscow where they raised the issue of military cooperation on the fight against terror groups including Daesh in Syria.
