Turkey may close Incirlik for U.S.

Turkey will consider requesting that the U.S. withdraw from Incirlik Air Base if Washington imposes sanctions on Ankara, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said.

In an interview on A Haber news channel, the Turkish minister highlighted that Turkey will consider all options if the U.S. imposes sanctions in response to the purchase of Russia's S-400 missile defense systems.

Noting that the S-400 is not an attack but a defense system, Çavuşoğlu also said Russia may provide an alternative for the F-35 jets if the U.S. fails to sell them to Turkey, Daily Sabah reported.
