    Germany's Die Linke (The Left) party calls for immediate German military withdrawal from Turkey, lawmaker with Die Linke Alexander Neu told Sputnik on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The lawmaker stressed that the current Turkish government cannot be a reliable partner for Germany.

    "The Left Party claims the immediate withdrawal of the Bundeswehr from Turkey. The current Turkish government is not and can not be a reliable partner for Germany," Neu noted.

    A delegation of German lawmakers was barred in June from visiting the Incirlik Air Base military base in southern Turkey, which hosts aircraft from Germany, as well as the United States, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Qatar participating in the US-led coalition against Daesh terrorists, outlawed in many countries including Russia.
