Turkey says Russian jet violated its airspace, envoy summoned | Reuters
ANKARA A Russian SU-34 jet violated Turkish airspace on Friday despite radar warnings, Turkey's foreign ministry said on Saturday, and the Russian ambassador was summoned over the incident.
The ministry said in a statement that the violation was a clear sign that Russia wanted issues between the two countries to escalate.
Turkey shot down a Russian warplane in November in an incident that wrecked relations between the two countries, both of which are involved in Syria's war.
