Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council Meeting With Erdogan Canceled

According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, the meeting of the High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council will not be held.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The December 15 meeting of the High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council, initially set to be attended by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will not be held, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

"No, it will not be held, it is not planned," Peskov told reporters.

Relations between Moscow and Ankara deteriorated after a Turkish jet brought down a Russian Su-24 aircraft over Syria in November. Turkey claimed that it downed the Russian aircraft because it violated Turkish airspace. Both the Russian General Staff and the Syrian Air Defense Command confirmed that the Russian bomber never crossed into Turkish airspace.
