Baku, Azerbaijan, June 12
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
Turkey did not accept the US request to participate in the investigation of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov’s assassination, Turkish media outlets write June 12.
In late May, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provided information to Turkey stating that the assassin Mevlut Mert Altintas had held correspondence with the US Ambassador to Turkey John Bass before the murder, according to the report.
The investigation revealed that the original murder attempt was scheduled for Nov. 15, 2016, according to Turkey’s media outlets.
Andrey Karlov died after being fatally wounded in an armed assault in an art gallery in Ankara late Dec. 19.
