Turkey will continue to treat airspace violators like Russia’s Su-24
Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan said that will continue to respond the same way it did when it downed the Russian Su-24 Fencer bomber if its airspace is violated, Sputnik News reports.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan stated that in case of another violation of the country’s airspace, Ankara is ready to respond in the same manner as with Russia’s Su-24.
“If today there will be another violation of our airspace, we are capable of the same kind of response,” Tayyip Erdogan said.
The downing of Russia’s Su-24 bomber was an “automatic reaction” in line with a standing order given to the Turkish military, according to Erdogan.
