Turkish defense minister urges Germany to review stance on asylum seekers

Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik has urged his German counterpart to review the country’s stance on individuals who are suspected of being coup plotters and currently seeking asylum in Germany.

Speaking about Berlin’s recent decision on withdrawing its military installations in the İncirlik air base, Isik said Germany was responsible for planning the process of retreat. 

"Ankara would not allow anyone to accuse Turkey of harming the struggle against the ISIL,” Anadolu Agency cited the minister as saying.  

“We have agreed with the German minister on the replacement in a way that would not hinder the fight against ISIL,” Isik said.

“They made the decision. We asked them to reconsider the issues that caused them to make this decision,” he added.
