Baku – APA. Turkey denied reports Monday that it would allow the Russian air force to use its Incirlik airbase, Daily Sabah news agency reported.

Speaking in a press conference in Ankara, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said he did not make such comments on Russia using the airbase, adding that he was referring to renewed cooperation with Russia on Syria and the fight against Daesh.

"We will cooperate with everyone who fights Daesh. We have been doing this for quite a while, and we opened Ä°ncirlik Airbase for those who want to join the active fight against Daesh," Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview on state broadcaster TRT Haber on Sunday.
