Britain’s ambassador to Ankara Richard Moore said Russia’s incursion into Turkish airspace was “reckless and worrying”.
Nato said its Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg would meet the Turkish Foreign Minister Feridun Sinirlioglu at the organisation’s headquarters in Brussels later on Monday.
The official was not authorized to publicly discuss sensitive military matters and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that two Turkish F16 jets forced the Russian aircraft to leave Turkish airspace. The military said it did not know which country the MIG-29 belonged to. The same message was also relayed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov by telephone.
The Foreign Ministry summoned Moscow’s ambassador to protest the violation, according to an e-mailed statement. Russian Federation launched air strikes last week against forces opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Davutoglu told Haber Turk television that Russian Federation assured Turkey that the airspace would not be violated again.
In Turkey, six new refugee camps for up to two million people which would be set up, partly financed by the European Union, the newspaper said.
On Friday, Turkey and its allies issued a joint statement asking Moscow to cease attacks on the Syrian opposition and to focus on fighting IS.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan appeared to mock European Union overtures for help with its migration crisis as he arrived for a long-awaited state visit to Brussels and a string of meetings with EU leaders set to start on Monday. Moscow says its intervention aims to weaken Islamic State militants, but Ankara and Western powers see it as support for Assad.
