PRAGUE, November 24. /TASS/. Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralec has urged all the states involved in the anti-terrorist operation to coordinate their efforts following the situation with Russia’s SU-24 military aircraft in Syria.
According to him, the situation with the aircraft is "a serious warning" (to participants of the operation against the Islamic State militants — TASS)
"The international community should sit at the negotiating table and agree [on coordination of actions — TASS] otherwise it is stooging for terrorists," he said.
"Considering that there is no sound agreement on a joint [anti-terrorist — TASS] strategy of the global community and the enemy has not been clearly defined every state is running its own war proceeding from its own interests," the minister said.
The Su-24 frontline bomber of the Russian aviation group in Syria crashed in the Syrian territory on Tuesday. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the plane was downed by an air-to-air missile launched by a Turkish F-16 fighter.
According to the Russian president, at the moment of the attack the Russian Su-24 plane was flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters at a distance of 1 km from the Turkish border. Putin called the incident a "stab in the back" of Russia delivered by "terrorism accomplices."
