White House: no comment on reported air base deal with Turkey

The White House on Thursday said U.S. President Barack Obama and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan discussed joint efforts to fight Islamic State militants, but a spokesman declined to say whether they reached a new agreement over the use of an air base in Incirlik. Local media in Turkey reported such an agreement had been finalized late Wednesday night, but Reuters could not confirm the report. The two leaders spoke by phone on Wednesday.
