FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Volkswagen VOWG_p.DE has decided against building a new factory in Turkey, car industry publication Automobilwoche said on Wednesday, citing sources at the German carmaker.

In October last year, Volkswagen put a decision about the plant on hold amid international criticism about the country’s military operations in Syria.

Volkswagen was not immediately available for comment.
