Turkey has released audio recordings of what it says are the Turkish military?s repeated warnings to the pilot of the Russian plane before it was shot down at the border with Syria - audio that grows increasingly more agitated. The recordings, made available to The Associated Press on Thursday, indicate the plane was warned several times Tuesday that it was approaching Turkey?s airspace and asked to change course, but there is no indication of a Russian reply. Turkey shot down the Russian Su-24 bomber on Tuesday, insisting it had violated its airspace despite repeated warnings. It was the first time in half a century that a NATO member had shot down a Russian plane.
French President Francois Hollande was traveling to Moscow on Thursday to push for a stronger coalition against Islamic State militants in Syria, trying to unite France, the United States and Russia in the aftermath of the Paris attacks that killed 130 people and jolted the West. Hollande?s visit comes two days after he met with President Barack Obama in Washington, where both leaders vowed to escalate airstrikes against IS and bolster intelligence sharing. Islamic State militants have claimed responsibility for the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, as well as deadly bombings in Beirut and the downing of a Russian airplane on Oct. 31 that killed all 224 people on board over Egypt?s Sinai Peninsula.
BEIRUT (AP) - The latest developments regarding the war in Syria. All times local. 3 p.m. Turkey's foreign minister says he's hopeful the downing of a Russian air force jet by Turkish warplanes this week will not harm long-standing relations between Turkey and Russia. Mevlut Cavusoglu says Russian-Turkish relations have gone through many difficulties in the past, but that he hopes that they will improve and that "diplomacy will win." Cavusoglu said after talks Thursday with breakaway Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci that "we don't want this incident to affect our relations with Russia." He said that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan will "meet face-to-face soon" but offered no details.
