Yıldırım: Turkey can provide the Russian VKS with the opportunity to be based in Incirlik, but Moscow didn’t address this issue

44
Moscow did not request the use of the Incirlik base, but if necessary, the Russian videoconferencing system can use it to fight terrorists, reports RIA News Statement by the Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım.




According to him, the information that Moscow has already applied for permission to use Incirlik does not correspond to reality. According to Yıldırım, this is not necessary.

“Turkey opened the Incirlik base to fight the DAESh (IG) terrorists. It is used by the United States and Qatar. Other countries may also wish to use the air base, where the Germans are now also operating. As for Russia, there has been no such appeal. I think that there is no need for that either. Because in Syria there are two bases. The difference in distance is less than 100-150 kilometers. Therefore, this kind of message is not credible ",
he explained.

The agency recalls that the activities of the Incirlik airbase are governed by the Agreement on military and economic cooperation between Turkey and the United States. Currently, there are based aircraft and other countries within the Western coalition to combat the IG.

    It seems to me that we have not yet reached the point where we can trust in these matters.

    I’m very interested in what really happened to Erdogan during the coup attempt, that he inflamed with such love for Russia?
    And it’s very interesting how much this love will last.

          In fact, over the 14 years of the AKP, Turkey has almost no real allies. It conflicts with all neighbors (Greece, Syria, Armenia, Georgia) and is on the verge of breaking with the EU and the USA.
          Спустя полгода после сбития нашего Су-24 "султан" наконец понял, что если он разругается ещё и с Россией, то его режиму придёт конец, что июльский переворот наглядно показал.
          Now, relations with Russia, China, Iran and Israel are for him the last chance to maintain power and statehood.

      Не только к России. Убить его хотели. Его духовные наставники и спонсоры, арабские корольки ни словом ни духом, хотя были в курсе событий. США и Европа практически расписались в организации событий. Эрдоган был предупрежден Израилем, Ираном и Россией. Причем Россией конкретно. Кого ему еще любить? Вопрос удержания власти накладывается на угрозу лишения жизни. А это, знаете ли, несколько выходит за рамки геополитических интересов. Жизнь ему дорога как память. Вопрос не в любви, вопрос в постоянстве. Если до конца года Эрдоган изменит свое отношение к Асаду, это будет основным доказательством возможной "верности". Пока он хочет услышать, что ему предложат саудиты, США и Европа.

      I’m more interested in the position of Israel, for what reason the Jews hinted. From reinsurance, in case the coup fails? Out of confidence that Erdogan already knows? Having information that he has already been warned? If none of these options is suitable, then the situation becomes even more mysterious.

      Утром после событий премьер во время пресс-конференции вроде бы поблагодарил за "консультации" кого то. Я тогда подумал кого же, США или кого? А затем оказалось что американцы плохие, европейцы тоже, Путин дружище. На встрече в Питере он сколько раз спасибо ему сказал?

      So really, we saved Erdogashka.

      Although if you think so, then in principle it is logical. The Americans didn’t like him very much, he was too masterful, but for some business he also required a lot of money. It does not look like a faithful vassal at all, like the rest (we will not point with a finger). So someone would come in his place, who unquestioningly carried out ALL the orders of the Americans, then in the north of Syria it would obviously not be easier, but much more difficult. Apparently our people understood and warned, helped the Turks. And so Erdogan drives a wedge, does not obey, argues with Europe, the USA, and so on. This is also good for us.
      Such thoughts.
      Although you can’t take their word for it and not substitute.

    I wonder why this stuffing from the Turks was made?
    Недавно был нож в спину а теперь и вроде базу предоставить готовы хотя русским это и не надо. Видать своим партнерам по нато сигнализируют. С другой стороны с курдами все совсем сложно становится, мы вроде как через Багдад им оружие передаем а в тойже Хасаки они выпадают из соглашений о прекращении огня, турки собираются "решать" сирийско-курдский вопрос. Очень все мутно, да еще матрасня со своими "правами" исключительных.

    In any circumstances, the Turks can never be trusted: in no military confrontation with the Anglo-Saxons did Turkey miss the opportunity to act as an adversary to Russia.

      right, I agree one hundred%. Erdogan just needs guarantees, and he has little chance of getting them after what happened with the Su-24. he understood that he was framed then, he understands that his country really needs all directions in both gas and tourism, and in nuclear energy, he understands that without Russia he would not be able to give all this to his country, from which he had taken it not so long ago, and he will do anything to get guarantees for the revival of these projects. without them, his candidacy in the next election is below the plinth. Erdogashi will not become friendship between you either, because the Turks are Turks ... they have never been to anyone else. in addition, these NATO restrictions prohibiting the Turks from capturing the Greek islands, so they are no longer interested in NATO, but this is only Erdogan in power. I repeat, he won’t be, everything will return to square one. On the other hand, the Americans will not forgive him for this, he actually hit them in the face accusing him of conspiracy against him, and his threats, as well as rapprochement with Russia. he has no other way now. either he will win the confidence of Russia and at the same time remain in power or he will not be both politically and physically. but the Americans will not forgive him. they will find some kind of clue and start fighting against the former ally, and Russia will be drawn into this war because of a trifle. Of course, Russia will be able to keep the straits and Constantinople, but in this war a lot of blood will be shed and some Turks will leave the country, some will remain, and some will die. and what kind of base Incirlik is, it’s a very good place, and a great base, you shouldn’t abandon it, but you also don’t have high hopes. just to squeeze the Americans out of there it is worth using, but before there, no more. this base can be an excellent air defense shield, then automatically NATO gets by the cabbage soup and the tinsel again, not having the opportunity to use the Greek bases in Tanagra and in the Court. the air defense base there will be like a thorn in the ass from NATO. but the choice is yours. to take or not to take.

        Even then they began to pinch, but some did not understand this, lamenting that they would not warm their asses on Turkish beaches and did not harvest their vegetables and fruits. But you did it. And you say tomatoes.

    And if Russia take it and agree to these Turkish calls and send an official request that the Turks will really provide us with their base? Is there any cunning here, because they themselves perfectly understand that Russia will not ask for what it does not need, having at its disposal a network of airfields in Syria: Khmeimim, Shairat, Tiyas; an airfield near Hamadan in Iran and the Erebuni airbase in Armenia ... Oh, they are cunning smile

    Strange statement ...
    And this is against the background of the fact that just the other day Erdogan personally promised Poroshenko that Turkey’s position on the indivisibility of Ukraine remains the same, and Turkey will never (!!!) recognize the annexation of Crimea to Russia ...

    "Неплохое" заявление на фоне попыток выстроить дружественные отношения с Россией в общем, и с "другом" Владимиром - в частности... Не правда ли ?

    And about the Incirlik base and supposedly providing it for our VKS - the duck is not the first freshness ...
    Firstly, we do not really need it ...
    And secondly, as it does not seem to be the joint basing of our VKS with the planes of the USA and Germany, I'm not talking about Qatar ...

    All rightly say that it is necessary from the beginning to expel yours from the base. Then carefully consider the conditions under which perhaps and would be based on the Russian Aerospace Forces. Why is it possible? It’s just that this base can become the Trojan horse of a chess game.
    Well, they’ll put the RF base there and for the states, it seems easier for me to arrange a provocation against the Russian Federation, it’s much easier and even no special conditions for the Russian Federation vryat whether they will save from provocation.
    There is no trust and will not soon appear in the Russian Federation to Turkey.
