ANKARA, January 30. /TASS/. Turkey’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday claimed that a Russian Su-34 fighter jet violated its airspace on January 29.
"Yesterday the Russian Aerospace Forces’ Su-34 violated Turkish airspace. Before the violation, Turkish radar stations repeatedly warned the Russian aircraft in Russian and in English," the ministry said.
It said that on January 29 in the evening "the ambassador of the Russian Federation was summoned to the ministry" and a protest was lodged to him in connection with what happened.
The statement does not state where the alleged airspace violation occurred exactly.
Spokesman for the Russian embassy in Ankara Igor Mityakov confirmed to a TASS correspondent that the meeting took place. "We confirm that the meeting took place. We do not make public its contents," he said.
