MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Turkey and its leadership have apologized for the downed Russian bomber and this signals that the normalization of ties with Ankara will influence the cooperation on Syria, Russia’s Ambassador to the UN Office and other international organizations in Geneva Alexei Borodavkin said on Thursday.
"The apologies of Turkey’s authorities for the downed Russian bomber give grounds to hope for the normalization of our political contacts and economic ties," the diplomat said. "We expect that we will cooperate with Turkey on the Syrian affairs more intensively and in a positive way."
The diplomat said Turkey is a full-fledged member of the International Syria Support Group. "They participate in the working group on supporting cessation of combat actions in Syria and take part in the group on humanitarian issues," he said. "A lot depends on them."
If Turkey influences its henchmen in Syria convincing them to take a more constructive stance at talks and look for common ground with the delegation of Damascus this would do good for the political settlement in Syria.
