ST. PETERSBURG, August 9. /TASS/. The issue of compensation for the downed Russian Su-24 bomber was not discussed at Russian-Turkish talks in the extended format, Russian Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev told journalists on Tuesday.
"This topic was not raised in the meeting in the extended format that I attended," Ulyukayev said.
Putin and Erdogan met for the first time today after Turkish Air Force downed a Su-24 bomber that took part in the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces’ counter-terrorist operation in Syria.
Russia demanded apologies, a compensation and to punish those guilty. Moscow severed contacts with Ankara until Turkey agreed to fulfill the demands. In July, Erdogan wrote a letter to Putin apologizing for the incident.
