Merkel: Germany will be looking for a replacement of the Turkish base of Incirlik

Germany will look for options for the redeployment of its troops from the Turkish base Incirlik in neighboring countries such as Jordan, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Merkel said that Germany does not abandon the negotiations with Turkey, but the parallel is to look for alternatives to Incirlik.

"A possible alternative, for example, among others is Jordan," - said Merkel, reports RIA "Novosti".

On Monday, Ankara refused the deputies of the Bundestag to visit the German soldiers stationed at the Incirlik base in connection with which Berlin thought about the withdrawal of troops from the base.

In March, the media reported that Germany after a series of incidents with Turkey have already started looking for a replacement Incirlik. It was assumed that instead of the base to Berlin can use military bases in Jordan, Kuwait and Cyprus.
