Putin swears to make Turkey regret plane downing

MOSCOW (TIP): Russian President Vladimir Putin, on December 3, vowed Turkey’s leadership would be made to regret the downing of one of Moscow’s warplanes as the top diplomats from both countries held their first high-level meeting since the incident.

Moscow announced a halt to talks on a major gas pipeline with Nato member Ankara as Putin fired another salvo in their war of words, while Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan shot back by claiming he had “proof” Russia was involved in illegal oil trading with the Islamic State group.
