MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. The Kremlin is waiting for a response from other countries about their willingness or unwillingness to take part in the examination of the flight recorder retrieved from Russia’s Sukhoi Su-24 jet shot down by Turkey.
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has told reporters that so far none of the countries responded to the invitation to take part in the examination. "No, as far as know, no answers were given yet," he said.
"So far, we are waiting for a response about the willingness of unwillingness of certain countries to take part (in the examination)," he said.
Peskov refused to specify what countries were invited to take part in the examination. "This is done by the Defense Ministry, so you will have to ask them," he said.
The Kremlin spokesman also admitted that was unprepared to answer a question from a TASS correspondent on how long Moscow would wait for a response from other countries. "The issue is overseen by the Defense Ministry," he said.
Earlier this week, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu presented the Su-24 flight recorder to President Putin who told him to unseal and decode the parametric flight recorder only in the presence of international experts. Putin expressed gratitude to all those who took part in its discovery and delivery.
Putin warned that Russia would not change its attitude to Turkey after the Su-24 flight recorder had been decoded irrespective of the result.
"I would like to make it clear right from start that we certainly need to know (all the data contained in the flight recorder). But out findings will not change our attitude to what the Turkish authorities did," he said.
"We need to work with this device (flight recorder) thoroughly and attentively at a high professional level jointly with international experts. Anyway, I am inviting anybody who wants to take part in this work," the Russian president said.
On December 9, Putin, in a telephone conversation with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, invited British specialists to take part in decoding data retrieved from the flight recorders of the Su-24 bomber shot down in Syria on November 24.
