Russia says the Syria-bound plane intercepted by Turkey amid reports it was carrying cargo which could aid government war efforts was transporting a legal shipment of radar equipment.

"There were no weapons on the plane," said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

His comments followed heated exchanges between Turkey and Syria over the exact nature of the items confiscated.

Turkey's PM earlier said Russian-made defence equipment was found on board - a claim Syria dismissed as a lie.

Damascus has challenged the Turks to put the confiscated items on public view, something Ankara has declined to do so far.

On the border tensions continued, with Turkey reportedly scrambling fighter jets after an air attack on a Syrian frontier town by Syrian government forces.

And in Syria itself, activists said rebel fighters had seized a government air defence base near the embattled north-western city of Aleppo.

Erdogan is going as mad as Bibi....;}

Whom the gods wish to destroy....

The plane was carrying a cargo sent by a legal Russian supplier in a legal way to a legal customer. This cargo included electrical equipment for a radar station, dual purpose equipment not prohibited by international conventions. Cargo documents have been fully issued in line with standard requirements.


It’s absolutely normal practice to transport this kind of cargo on civilian planes, and this is confirmed by the fact that *even before* the Syrian airplane entered Turkey’s airspace, the Turkish authorities suggested that it either change its course or land in Ankara. The pilot made a landing, since he knew that he was doing nothing illegal.


In conclusion, I will add that according to our data, the supplier will demand the return of the cargo, which is its property.


And finally, we expect an official explanation from the Turkish side as to why Turkey refused to grant Russian diplomats access to their fellow citizens aboard that plane.

Russian FM Lavrov

Don't fuck with the Russians..... :roll: :twisted:
