Protesters Outside Incirlik Base In Turkey Demand Withdrawal Of US Troops - Organizers - UrduPoint

Incirlik Air Base

Protesters outside the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey have demanded that all US troops withdraw in the wake of President Joe Biden's recognition of the 1915 Armenian genocide, the political party Vatan, which organized the rally, told Sputnik on Tuesday.

On Saturday, Biden used the word "genocide" to describe the persecution of the Armenian people by the Ottoman authorities in his Armenian Remembrance Day statement, prompting objections from Ankara.

"For half a century, the Incirlik base has been a nest of US agents, terrorism, [and] one of the centers of [the 2016 coup attempt] and served as a shelter for its organizers. It is an enemy center, used against our neighbors and brethren in Central Asia. We are calling to have the Incirlik and Kurecik [bases] transferred to the Turkish air force; the US troops should be sent home within 15 days," the vice chairman of the party, Serdar Uskupu, said in his speech at the protest.

The party already held protests outside of the US Embassy in Ankara as well as the Consulate General in Istanbul, demanding the US military bases be shut down, and Crimea recognized as Russian territory.
