ANKARA: Russia should apologise for violating Turkey’s airspace, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan was quoted as saying on Thursday, days after a Russian jet was shot down near the Syria border.

“Those who violated our airspace are the ones who need to apologise,” Erdogan was quoted as saying on the CNN website.

“Our pilots and our armed forces, they simply fulfilled their duties, which consisted of responding to … violations of the rules of engagement. I think this is the essence.”
