ANKARA, October 7. /TASS/. Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov had a meeting at Turkey’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday to discuss the incident over the violation of the republic’s airspace, a press attache for the Russian embassy in Turkey has said.
"We confirm this. Indeed, such a meeting took place yesterday. Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the ambassador was invited to the ministry. The meeting was held in connection with the airspace violations reported earlier by the Turkish Foreign Ministry," Igor Mityakov said.
The diplomat stressed that the ambassador was "invited" rather than "summoned."
Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said earlier that a Russian fighter aircraft violated Turkey’s airspace on October 3. Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Monday that Russia’s Su-30 fighter jet had briefly entered Turkey’s airspace for just several seconds due to bad weather conditions. The ministry sent the respective explanations to the Turkish side.
Russia’s aerospace forces launched pinpoint strikes against the Islamic State targets in Syria on September 30. The Russian air group in Syria comprises more than 50 warplanes and helicopters. The military operation is conducted at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
