MOSCOW, November 24. /TASS/. The intention of Turkey to consult with NATO in respect of the incident with the Russian military aircraft shot down in Syria instead of talks with Moscow evidences hostility of Turkey in respect of Russia, head of the International Affairs Committee of the State Duma Alexey Pushkov told TASS on Tuesday.
"Approaching the NATO evidences hostility of actions of the Turkish side in respect of Russia. Talks between leaders of countries will probably be appropriate in a situation if the Turkish leaders have a desire of smoothing out the incident as much as possible," Pushkov said. Turkey applies to the NATO instead of talks with the Russian leaders as if it "calls to protect it against the Russian attack," he added.
The Prime Minister of Turkey Ahmet Davutoglu earlier instructed the Turkish foreign ministry to consult with the NATO and the UN regarding the incident with the Russian Su-24 aircraft.
