The flight cargo which have breathing machines Spain ordered from China have been stuck in Ankara, Turkey, for seven days.

Turkey has intercepted air cargo containing breathing machines ordered by Spain from China. Air cargo en route to Spain made a stopover in Ankara last Saturday and the Turkish authorities have not allowed the flight to continue their journey.

Air cargo was to bring 150 breathing machines to Spain for use by hospitals in the most critical situation due to the coronavirus. However, the flight has been stuck in Ankara for seven days. It is very possible that air cargo will never arrive at its destination in Spain.

Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha González Laya said at a news conference on Friday that Turkey is likely to have taken the breathing machines in question for its own use.
