    Serbia has friendly relations with both Russia and Turkey and intends to adhere to the same policy in the future, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said Monday.

    BELGRADE (Sputnik) — He also said that Serbia wanted all the problems between Turkey and Russia "to be solved the best way possible."

    "We know our place in the world. We have good and friendly relations with the Russian Federation and Turkey and will continue [to maintain them] in the future," Vucic said at a press conference during Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu's two-day visit to Belgrade.

    Moscow's relations with Ankara deteriorated after a Russian Su-24 aircraft was downed on November 24 by a missile fired from a Turkish F-16 fighter over Syria in response to an alleged violation of Turkish airspace. Russia introduced a set of restrictive measures against Turkey in response to the downing of the aircraft, which it said never crossed into Turkish airspace.
