AFP , Thursday 26 Nov 2015

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu vowed Thursday that Ankara would not apologise to Moscow over the downing of a warplane on the Syrian border.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier his country had not received any apology from Turkish leaders.

"We don't need to apologise on an occasion that we are right," Cavusoglu said.

"But we said on the phone yesterday (Wednesday) that we are sorry," he added, referring to a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
