Russia suggests plane grounding will not hurt Russia-Turkey ties
MOSCOW Oct 14 (Reuters) - Russia's foreign minister suggested on Sunday that Turkey's grounding of a Syrian jet en route from Moscow to Damascus last week will not harm ties between Moscow and Ankara, state-run Russian news agency RIA reported.
"I assure you, nobody should worry about the state of Russian-Turkish relations," RIA quoted Sergei Lavrov as saying in Luxembourg. "They are developing on a stable and solid foundation."
