MOSCOW, July 14 /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a briefing on Thursday it would take time to restore Russia’s relations with Turkey.
"It is always easy to spoil the relations. One shot would be enough. But it is always difficult to restore them because we do not have a magic wand. I will be honest to say that it’s going to take some time," the Russian diplomat stressed.
The Russian-Turkish bilateral relations started getting back on track after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had officially apologized to Russian President Vladimir Putin for a Su-24 plane, which the Turkish Air Force shot down on November 24, 2015. On June 30, 2016, Putin lifted ban on selling tourist trips to Russian vacationers. He also told the Russian government to take measures to lift a ban on charter flights between the two countries.
