TEHRAN, November 26. /TASS/. Turkey has made a huge mistake by bringing down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M bomber, speaker of Iran’s Majlis (parliament) Ali Larijani has said as quoted by Press TV.
He also criticized the stance of US President Barack Obama and his administration on the incident. "Obama’s support of this action is an even bigger mistake that further intensifies the conflicts in the region," Larijani said.
On Tuesday, a Turkish F-16 fighter jet brought down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M bomber, which, Ankara alleges, violated the country’s airspace near the Syrian border. The Russian Defense Ministry said the warplane was flying over Syrian territory and had never violated Turkey’s airspace.
Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the attack on the Russian bomber would have "serious consequences" for the Russian-Turkish relations. According to the Russian leader, the attack of the Turkish Air Force on the Russian warplane, which took part in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria and posed no threat to Turkey, was "a stab in Russia’s back."
