MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On May 15, the German Foreign Ministry said a visit by German lawmakers to the country's troops stationed at Incirlik was stalled by the Turkish side a day before it was due to take place.
“We are continuing our work to resolve this saddening problem. I have visited Incirlik twice in the past but not this time,” Erdmann told reporters, as quoted by Hurriyet newspaper.
In November 2016, German media reported that military officials have traveled to Jordan’s capital Amman to investigate a possible relocation of Tornado spy jets from southern Turkey.
The Turkish Incirlik airbase stations hundreds of German personnel and several Tornado jets to carry out airstrikes against Daesh in Iraq and Syria alongside the United States and several other NATO member states.
