MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Turkey risks to face a complicated situation in the region, the country’s leaders have crossed the line of acceptable, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the beginning of talks with the Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem on Friday.
Lavrov thanked Damascus sincerely for the rescue of the Russian pilot.
"I do not think we now have reasons to discuss our perception of the Turkish provocation against our jet," the minister said. "Our perception has been presented in most details, first of all by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin."
"We believe the Turkish leaders have crossed the line of the acceptable," Lavrov said. "They risk bringing Turkey into a most complicated situation — both from the point of view of long-term national interests and from the point of view of the situation in the region."
Turkey’s attack on the Russian warplane was an unprecedented act of aggression, Syria offers condolences to the families of the dead servicemen, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said on Friday ahead of his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
"I want to convey our condolences to the families of the servicemen who died as a result the unprecedented, provocative act of aggression by Turkey," he said.
Muallem added that he agreed with the remarks of the Russian President Vladimir Putin that such actions were a stab in the back. "We have said for five years now that Turkey helps to support terrorists for ideological reasons, stabbing us in the back every day over a span of five years," he said.
