Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened the United States with the closure of Incirlik air base. Should this be necessary in view of the American sanctions in the room and because of the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the American Senate, he could do so, Erdogan said. He could also close the Kurecik radar station. “If they threaten us to implement these sanctions, we have to react”.

Turkey has been America’s NATO partner since 1950. The United States is storing nuclear weapons at the Incirlik air base in Turkey. Senators are demanding sanctions against Turkey for the purchase of Russian S-400 missiles.

“After America threatened sanctions against Turkey for the purchase of Russian missiles, President Erdogan has now announced that it has the power to close Incirlik air base with American nuclear weapons”

Turkey originally wanted to procure F-35 fighter jets from America. However, the government in Washington kicked Turkey out of the F-35 program because of the S-400 purchase.

Relationships are also burdened by the fact that the Senate officially classified the mass murder of Armenians as genocide around 100 years ago. Turkey, which emerged from the Ottoman Empire, recognizes that numerous Armenians were killed during the First World War.

However, Turkey denies that this was a systematic genocide for which the government of the Ottoman Empire was responsible.
