ANKARA, July 22. /TASS/. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has praised the Russian authorities’ decision to resume air traffic with Turkey.
"After a coup attempt, Russian authorities have suspended air traffic. Aeroflot stopped selling air tickets. We personally assured Moscow of flight safety," Cavusoglu told TRT TV channel on Friday.
The issues of ensuring safe stay of Russians in Turkey are resolved "not only by relevant ministries but by the people in general," he added. "Russians should not worry, we told them this, and they will lift the ban now. We thank Russia for such solidarity," Cavusoglu noted.
Russian aviation agency Rosaviatsiya has lifted temporary suspension of air traffic with Turkey starting from July 22.
A group of insurgents attempted a coup in Turkey overnight to July 17. Bombs were dropped on the parliament building and the presidential palace in Ankara. The country’s leadership later said that the coup was quashed. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that the situation is under the control of the official government.
According to latest reports, about 190 civilians and 100 putschists died and nearly 1,500 more people were injured. Over 6,000 people were arrested after a failed coup attempt. Over 7,500 people were detained on suspicion of involvement into the coup attempt. Among them are two presidential adjutants, 100 policemen, 6,038 servicemen and 755 judges and prosecutors.
