The decision on the withdrawal of German troops from the Turkish airbase Incirlik should be postponed until the end of the negotiations of the foreign Ministry, the agreement was reached at the NATO summit, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a press conference with the Prime Minister of India Narendra modi in Berlin.

«We agreed at the NATO summit that the talks will continue, and therefore the CDU/CSU in Parliament believes that it is necessary to wait until the end of the talks between the foreign Ministers,» said the Chancellor, adding that Berlin continues to insist on the admission of German MPs on Incirlik.

According to Merkel, «over the next weeks parliamentary hearings, the decision must be made».

Turkey the day before the start of the intended visit of a group of German MPs on a military base «Incirlik» informed the German foreign office about the impossibility of this trip. Then, German Chancellor Merkel said that Germany will continue to look for alternatives to move the German military contingent from a military base in Turkey to neighboring countries.
