TURKS BOW TO PUTIN, ERDOGAN APOLOGIZES FOR JET SHOOT DOWN
Dmitry Peskov, the presidential press secretary to Vladimir Putin has confirmed that Turkish President Erdogan has finally offered apologies to the Russian President for the death of the pilot of the downed Russian plane.
Peskov said quote, “Russian President Vladimir Putin has received a message from Turkey’s President Erdogan where the Turkish leader expressed his readiness to settle the situation over the downing of the Russian warplane. In his message, the Turkish head of state offered his condolences to the family of the Russian pilot and said, ‘I am sorry.’”
Erdogan also confirmed, to the Kremlin, that an investigation is underway against the Turkish citizen who “is associated with death of Russian pilot”.
This is a positive development in a region wrought with civil war and could spell the beginning of renewed ties between the two nations.
