Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov after talks with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Moscow isn't planning any war on Turkey
Lavrov expressed the hope that “such encroachments implying intrusion into Syrian territory, the territory of a sovereign state, will not go on.”
“Yesterday’s attack against our plane and the whole situation is not to be used for pushing through the idea of a no-fly, buffer zone by hook or by crook.”
He pointed out that Turkish planes violate Greece's airspace some 1,500 times a year.
The official stressed that the recommendations to Russian citizens not to visit Turkey is not revenge, and it's based on the assessment of the terrorist threat.
“As for the recommendations to our citizens not to visit Turkey, this is not revenge, this was not the off-the-cuff decision,” he said. “We assessed the presence of the terrorist threat in Turkey without bias.”
