TURKEY: ‘ Denial by Ankara Allowing Washington to Use its Bases Leads to Speculation ‘

#AceWorldNews – TURKEY (Ankara) – October 13 – Ankara has denied allowing Washington to use its bases against Islamic State militants, AFP said.

There is no new agreement with the US about Incirlik, a Turkish government official said of an air base in southern Turkey that the US wants to use to launch air strikes.

“Negotiations are continuing” based on Turkish conditions previously laid out, the source added.

US officials had earlier said Turkey would also host training for “moderate” Syrian rebels.
