AKP says continued Russian airspace violations will be considered a ‘threat’
DHA photoA continuation of Russia’s violations of Turkish air space would be considered a “threat” to the country, Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesperson Ömer Çelik has said.
“Russia is a friendly country, not an enemy. But if the violations continue, we will consider them a threat and we will do whatever is necessary to eliminate them,” Çelik told reporters on Oct. 7.
He also described Russia’s proposal for a meeting to give an explanation for the recent violations as “positive.”
