Turkey has closed its airspace to Russian military and civilian flights to Syria after notifying Moscow, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saturday.

“We were given permissions in three-month intervals. The latest one was until April”, the minister said in an interview with the press during his flight to Latin America, stating that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had informed his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

“Henceforth the flights have stopped,” Cavusoglu added, saying that the process was conducted through dialogue on both the Montreux Convention and dialogue.

    ANOTHER example of Putin doing NOTHING. I hope he is deposed and replaced by a hardliner. I cant believe Putin would accept this shut from a POS like erdogan.
