Turkey will cooperate with Russia to reduce tensions over the incident with the Russian Su-24 shot down in Syria, the Turkish Air Force, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated in a column for The Times newspaper.

On Tuesday, a Russian Su-24 attack aircraft was downed by an air-to-air missile while carrying out precision strikes against terrorists in northern Syria. The missile was fired by a Turkish F-16 fighter in response to alleged violation of the Turkish airspace by the Russian jet.

"While the measures to defend our territory will remain in place, Turkey will work with Russia and our allies to calm tensions,"- Reuters reports, citing the Turkish Prime Minister.

​On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed Turkey's claims that it was impossible to recognize the downed warplane in Syria as a Russian attack aircraft before the attack.
