A military aircraft maneuvres on the runway at Incirlik Air Base, southeastern Turkey, on July 28, 2015The Turkish government has given its formal approval for the United States to use the Incirlik air base in southern Turkey for raids against Islamic State (IS) militants in Syria, a foreign ministry official said Wednesday. The accord came after months of tough negotiations between the two NATO allies that saw Washington grow increasingly frustrated over Turkey’s reluctance to play a robust role in the international coalition against jihadists. The decree signed by the cabinet authorises the implementation of an agreement between Turkey and the United States on the base that was thrashed out during a visit to Ankara by US presidential envoy John Allen earlier this month.
