Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 23
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Normalization of relations between Russia and Turkey depends on Moscow, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview with Al Jazeera.
He said that Turkey earlier attempted to normalize the relations with Russia, but the latter rejected it.
"We, as before, stand for normalizing the relations with Russia. Meanwhile, Ankara intends to protect its airspace," said Davutoglu.
The relations between Russia and Turkey have deteriorated following the SU-24 incident. Following this, Russian president signed a decree on measures to ensure the national security and special economic measures against Turkey.
