    Russia and Turkey have held the first meeting of an intergovernmental commission on military-technical cooperation since resolving the crisis in bilateral relations, Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the FSMTC statement, the meeting was held on December 12-14, and resulted in signing of a protocol, whose details have not been disclosed.

    Russian-Turkish relations deteriorated after the downing of a Russian military plane by a Turkish fighter jet in Syria on November 24, 2015. Moscow imposed a number of restrictive measures on Turkey in response to what President Vladimir Putin then described as a "stab in the back." A thaw in relations between Moscow and Ankara began in June following Turkey's apology to Russia.
