 U.S. senators say that the transfer of US troops from Turkey to Greece is denied by the United States


According to the report, Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Johnson said in an interview last week that the growing tension between the United States and Turkey has made the United States prepare for the withdrawal of inkellik Air Force Base in Turkey.

He pointed out that the United States is planning to expand its naval base in the Gulf of sodas, Crete, as an alternative.

It is very unfortunate that Erdogan has led Turkey on this road. It has threatened the US presence in Turkey, which is also the reason why the United States has recently strengthened its military cooperation with Greece. He said.

In response to Johnsons statement, Pentagon spokesman Campbell said that the U.S. military has no plan to leave inkellik air force base, which has been stationed there for decades, and its presence shows the strong relationship between the United States and Turkey.

In recent years, the relationship between the United States and Turkey has been challenged by the United States support for the Kurdish armed forces, Turkeys purchase of Russian S-400 air defense system, and the U.S. expulsion of Turkey from the F-35 project.
