MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Turkey is asking Russia to provide documents to investigate the case with a Russian Su-24 bomber downed by a Turkish fighter jet, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV Channel on Wednesday.
"If Russia has some documents, then our prosecutors would ask to provide them. If Russia gives them to us, we’ll hand these data over to prosecutors so that investigative measures are based on specific documents and data," he said.
Turkey is ready to render financial assistance to the family of the Su-24 bomber’s killed pilot Oleg Peshkov, Cavusoglu said.
"I informed Mr. [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov that I’m ready to pay a visit to the widow of the killed Russian pilot, if she gives her consent," the minister added.
On November 24, 2015, a fighter jet of the Turkish Air Force shot down the Russian bomber Su-24, which participated in the anti-terror operation in Syria.
On November 28, 2015, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on measures to ensure Russia’s national security and protect Russian citizens from criminal and other unlawful actions and on imposing special economic sanctions against Turkey.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan apologized in late June this year for the incident and the relations between the two countries began to be normalized.
