BELGRADE, December 28. /TASS/. Ankara hopes to recover relations with Moscow after the aggravation following the incident with the Russian Su-24 bomber crash near the Syria-Turkey border, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Monday.
"Lately Turkey had excellent relationship with Russia, and I hope we will return to the past days of good relations," Davutoglu told a news conference in Belgrade after the talks with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic.
The premier said Turkey did not know whose plane was crossing the border.
On November 24, the Su-24 frontline bomber of the Russian aviation group in Syria crashed in the Syrian territory. 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 one kilometer from the Turkish border and posed no threat to Turkey.
