Russia said on Friday it would suspend its visa-free regime for Turkish nationals from January, as Moscow retaliates for Ankara's downing of a Russian bomber.

"A decision has been made to halt the visa-free regime with Turkey," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters after talks with Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem.

"This decision will enter into force from January 1, 2016.
