Turkey denied reports Monday that it would allow the Russian air force to use its Incirlik airbase.
Speaking in a press conference in Ankara, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said he did not make such comments on Russia using the airbase, adding that he was referring to renewed cooperation with Russia on Syria and the fight against Daesh.
"We will cooperate with everyone who fights Daesh. We have been doing this for quite a while, and we opened İncirlik Airbase for those who want to join the active fight against Daesh," Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said in an interview on state broadcaster TRT Haber on Sunday.
While both Turkey and Russia recognize the threat of ISIS, another spelling of ISIS, they are on opposing sides in the Syrian conflict.
