Putin snubs Erdogan in Paris as pilot's body returned to Russia
Moscow (AFP) - Russian President Vladimir Putin snubbed a meeting with Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in France on Monday as the body of a pilot killed when Ankara downed one of Moscow's warplanes returned home.
Turkish authorities meanwhile again pledged not to apologise over last Tuesday's downing of the Russian jet on the Syrian border...
As it was suspected, Putin rejects meeting with Erdogan at the Paris Climate Conference. This is again another message from Putin that he expects more from his turkish counterpart regarding the incident with the down russian aircraft the and killing of one of the pilots.
Turkey is a tool of NATO, the 'silent treatment' won't work.
Just keep bombing the terr supply lines between Turkey and Syria.

Nonsense - Don't see Turkey apologising to Greece for violating their airspace 2244 in 2014 alone. Funny how they stopped violating Greek airspace after they downed the Russian aircraft!

There is absolutely nothing Putin can do. If Greece feels so strongly about its airspace, why doesn't it shoot a Turkish plane down? That would teach them a lesson.
Putin needs to apologize to Turkey for violating its airspace
It's unjustifiable. Our leaders need to act like adults not children. There was absolutely no reason for Turkey to assume it was about to be attacked by a Russian bomber, period. Anything beyond that is obfuscating the truth.
? He is refusing to talk to the only man who can help him defeat Daesh in Syria. Putin has already blown his chance to look like a peacemaker, now he is blowing his chance to look like he is willing to negotiate at all.
Could it be nobody over there knows what they are doing anymore? Too many cooks.... spoil the pot.
