MOSCOW, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - Experts from Turkey and the U.S. will make an observation flight over Russia’s territory in the period of July 22 through to July 26 in the framework of implementation of the International Treaty on Open Skies, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service said.
“The Turkish plane CN-235 belongs to a class of aircraft not meant for being equipped with weaponry of any type,” it said. “The equipment installed on it passed the necessary international inspection. Russian specialists participated in it, too.”
“In the course of the flight along a designated route, Russia experts will exercise control over the performance of observation equipment right aboard the plane in line with the obligations specified in the treaty,” the press service said.
