MOSCOW, June 28. /TASS/. Russian State Duma speaker Sergey Naryshkin said Tuesday that one of the factors that made Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan apologize to Russia for the plane downed late last year was possibly Turkey’s external partners’ pressure.
"I do not rule out such advice and probably political pressure on the part of Turkey’s other partners," Naryshkin told the Rossiya 24 television channel.
However, according to Naryshlin, an apology on the part of Erdogan is a positive step.
"We should admit that it is a positive step on the part of Turkey’s political leadership. It is strange that the step was not made from the very beginning, in November, when a crime against Russian servicemen was committed," the lawmaker noted.
