"In regard to Turkey, then here we can express doubt in joint action, at least at this stage. But this obviously doesn’t apply to the other members of the [US-led] coalition," Peskov told journalists.
Terrorists operate right next to Syria's border with Turkey, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday, responding to a question on whether Russia would carry out flights further away from the Turkish border after Tuesday's downing of its Su-24 military jet.
"There is no such thing as 'further away from the Turkish border.' There is such a thing as Syrian airspace. I would very much like for terrorists and militants to operate further away from the Turkish border, but, unfortunately, they have a tendency to operate on Syrian ground right next to the border with Turkey," Peskov told reporters.
There have been no high-level contacts between Moscow and Ankara since the Russian Su-24 Fencer bomber was downed by Turkey over Syria, Dmitry Peskov said.
"So far there have been no high-level contacts," Peskov told journalists.
Russia is deploying S-400 missile defense systems to the airbase in Syria because a Russian Su-24 Fencer bomber was shot out of the Syrian skies, which is a violation of international law and an unfriendly act, Kremlin spokesman said.
"The plane was brought down in Syrian skies, which is a violation of international law and an extremely unfriendly act in regard to a Russian military aircraft," Peskov told journalists.
