Islamist 'Dictatorship' Turkey Once Again 'Ignores' German MP's Request to Visit Incirlik Airbase. (SP).
According to German newspaper "Welt am Sonntag", the foreign policy spokesman of the Left Party, Jan van Aken, informed the Turkish Federal Foreign Office about his plans to visit the Turkish base and talk to 250 Bundeswehr soldiers stationed there.
