    Turkey still does not make any concrete steps to improve relations with Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow still does not see any concrete moves by Turkey aimed at the improvement of relations with Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Friday.

    "We are still not seeing any progress in Turkey's response to conditions put forward by Russia that would allow us to speak of any preliminary basis for improving relations with Turkey," Zakharova said in commentary posted on the ministry's website.

    Russian-Turkish relations sharply deteriorated following the downing of a Russian Su-24 combat plane by a Turkish F-16 fighter jet in Syria on November 24, 2015.
