MOSCOW, August 10. /TASS/. Russia would have supported the Turkish authorities during the attempted military coup, even if President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had not offered apologies for the downed Russian jet, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister told the Mezhdunarodnaya Zhizn (International Life) magazine.
"I will say yes," Ryabkov noted answering a question on the issue.
"Besides, we welcome the steps taken by President Erdogan and the entire Turkish leadership aimed at mending our bilateral relations," he added. "In the proper sense of the word, we embarked on restoring relations, without losing a single day. Such countries as Russia and Turkey, the immediate neighbors influencing numerous processes, simply cannot miss the chance to build relations in a positive manner.".
