Turkey wants Russia to lift sanctions immediately

According to Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusolgu, Russia's sanctions against Turkey need to lifted as soon as possible. The sanctions cause irreparable damage to the economies of both countries.

"In the interests of our countries and their future, we consider it appropriate to revise the measures and immediately cancel them. Otherwise, the economic measures will directly affect the economies of the two countries and lead to negative consequences for both Russian and Turkish people," the Turkish Foreign Minister said.

The Russian-Turkish relations seriously worsened after the Turkish Air Force shot down a Russian warplane over Syria on November 24. One of the pilots was killed with gunfire from the ground, while the second one survived and was rescued during a special operation, in which a Russian marine was killed.

The Turkish authorities claimed that the Russian jet violated turkish airspace and refused to even apologize for the incident.

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the Su-24 was flying only above the Syrian territory and did not violate Turkey's airspace.
