According to the diplomat, Turkey should apologize for the attack on the Russian Su-24 aircraft, which resulted in the death of two Russian servicemen. The Turkish authorities are also expected to find and punish those responsible for the incident as well as pay damage compensation to the Russian side.
"If our expectations are not met, Turkey's other announcements will not pay off," the ambassador said, cited by the newspaper.
According to Karlov, Ankara has repeatedly expressed its readiness to engage in dialogue, but at the same time made statements that contradict the announced approach.
The diplomat also claimed that one of the Su-24's pilots was killed by Turkish citizen Alparslan Çelik after he ejected himself from the aircraft.
The attack led to the death of one of the two pilots while he was trying to land with a parachute. The other pilot was rescued with the help of the Syrian special forces and was transported to a Russian base in Syria.
