Turkey has right to protect its border, says Erdogan

(Last Updated On: 25/11/2015)


TURKISH President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has defended the shooting down of a Russian warplane by Turkish jets on Tuesday.

“Everybody should respect Turkey’s right to protect its own borders,” said Erdogan amid reports of Russia anger of the attack

“This incident happened within the framework of the rules of engagement that Turkey had already announced,” Erdogan said. “No one should have any doubt that we have done our best to avoid this incident.”

A Russian warplane was shot down at the Turkish-Syrian border earlier Tuesday after repeatedly ignoring warnings that it was violating Turkish airspace.

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said: “This tragic event will bear serious consequences for Turkish-Russian relations.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov cancelled his scheduled visit to Turkey in the wake of the shooting down of the Russian warplane.

Putin alleged that Russian warplanes had been launching an operation against Daesh north of Latakia.

Noting that Turkey was supporting opposition groups in Syria, Erdogan said that the region where Bayirbucak Turkmen live was not an area where Daesh is present.

Syrian regime forces, backed by Russian air forces, conducted a ground offensive on the predominantly Turkmen villages in the Bayirbucak area in the northwestern Latakia province last Friday.
