Turkey: Russia will ‘face the consequences’ for continued airspace violations

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Following Russia’s latest (alleged) violation of Turkey’s airspace from Syria last Friday, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned Moscow it will “face the consequences” if it continues carrying out such infringements.
“We summoned the (Russian) ambassador to our ministry and protested the act. We clearly told him, ‘If there are similar violations again you will have to face the consequence,’ because we previously communicated our rules of engagement to Russia,” Cavusoglu said at a press conference in Riyadh on Sunday, according to Hurriyet Daily News.
The latest (alleged) violation saw a Russian Su-34 warplane (supposedly) enter Turkish air space briefly despite (alleged) warnings broadcast by the Turks in both English and Russian telling the Russian jet to divert its course.
Barzani on the left, or is it the right or does it really matter?
Russian-Turkish relations are at an all-time low since November 24 when a Russian warplane was shot down on (actually inside Syria) the Syria-Turkey border after (allegedly) violating Turkish air space for 17 seconds.
The Kremlin’s warplanes have been bombing Turkmen in Syria’s northwestern border region with Turkey. Over the weekend 1,600 Turkmen and Arab (terrorists) reportedly fled Russian bombing over the border into Turkey
