Turkey's Erdogan says Russia continues to violate Turkish airspace

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday accused Russia of continuing to violate Turkish airspace, three months after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border.

Erdogan, who was speaking to a group of local officials in Ankara in a speech broadcast live, also said the Syrian Kurdish YPG and its political arm, the PYD, should be excluded from the Syrian ceasefire process.
