Kremlin spokesman stated that Kremlin found out about about Turkey’s proposal regarding the Incirlik airbase through the media.

 

The Kremlin found out about about Turkey’s proposal regarding the Incirlik airbase through the media and Moscow will need to analyze this “important statement,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

“I don’t know if there have been any official military talks on this matter, whether they’ve had time to resume them. If I’m not mistaken, they have not. We really did hear this statement for the first time through the media. Of course, this is an important statement and it will need to be analyzed both politically and militarily,” Peskov told reporters.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told local television earlier in the day that Ankara could allow Moscow to use the Incirlik military airbase in southern Turkey in its fight against the Daesh.
