MOSCOW (Sputnik) – In June, Ankara restricted a delegation of German lawmakers access to the air base where some German forces are stationed. Cavusoglu said last month that German officials would be able to visit the base if the German government distanced itself from a Bundestag resolution recognizing the early 20th century massacre of ethnic Armenians by the Ottoman Empire as genocide. On September 2, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said that Bundestag resolution was not legally binding.
"We set a condition for Germany. Germany fulfilled it by stating that this decision had no legal power… Germany met our expectations," Cavusoglu told a press conference.
The Incirlik Air Base hosts six German Tornado reconnaissance jets aircraft, as well as jets from the United States, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Qatar who are participating in the US-led coalition against Daesh, which is outlawed in many countries.
