    Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said that Belarus is ready to assist in the settlement of the Russia-Turkey conflict.

    MINSK (Sputnik) — Belarus is ready to assist in the settlement of the Russia-Turkey conflict, Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said Sunday.

    "We are ready, if necessary, to make any effort to settle [the Russia-Turkey conflict] in the same way as we do regarding Ukraine," the minister told the Belarusian TV in an interview, adding that Belarus did not insist on a mediator's role.

    Relations between Moscow and Ankara deteriorated following the downing of Russia’s Su-24 frontline bomber over Syria by a Turkish jet on November 24.

    On November 28, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on economic measures against Ankara in retaliation for the downing of the Su-24 aircraft.
