Would have acted differently if known jet was Russian: Erdogan

Istanbul: President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today that Turkey would have acted differently if it had known that a warplane its forces downed on the Syrian border this week was Russian.

“If we had known if it was a Russian plane maybe we would have warned it differently,” Erdogan told France 24 television, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin had not answered his call after Tuesday’s incident that has seriously damaged ties.
