Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec.3
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The anti-Turkish statements made by Russian authorities are similar to the spirit of former USSR, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on the eve of his visit to Baku.
Turkey hoped that Russia has got rid of the USSR's propaganda rhetoric, but facts show that it is not exactly that way, he said, TRT Haber TV channel reported Dec.3.
No one believes in the anti-Turkish propaganda but Russian authorities, said the prime minister.
Relations between Russia and Turkey have deteriorated after Turkish Air Force jets shot down the Russian SU-24 bomber when it entered Turkish airspace Nov. 24.
Earlier, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that unlike Russia, Turkey holds back emotions.
Meanwhile, he noted that Turkey will act within the international diplomacy.
