Telephone conversation between leaders of the two countries could take place Wednesday or Thursday.
“Türk milleti ve Rus halkı bu krizi benimsemedi, Çarşamba Perşembe günü ya da sayın ile telefonda Putin Cumhurbaşkanımız görüşecek.”

Earlier, Erdogan has sent Putin a letter in which he expressed sorrow for the incident in November last year.
The Turkish President said that Ankara is configured to settlement in bilateral relations and is willing to make every effort to do so. Separately, Erdogan expressed his condolences to the family of the deceased commander su-24 Oleg Peshkov, stressing that Turkey is ready to “any initiative” to ease the severity of the damage.
More specifically expressed, the Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, has announced its readiness to pay compensation for the downed plane.
About the Kremlin’s reaction to “a goodwill gesture” from Ankara is not known. MK interviewed experts expressed the opinion that the preparation for discharge in the relations between the two countries were long overdue. In this case, we can hardly expect that level of cooperation will go to the previous level.
Note that a conciliatory signal to Turkey came amid the deterioration of Ankara’s relations with the United States and the European Union. It is believed that Erdogan decided to look again to Russia, fearing international isolation.
