The Kremlin press service announced on June 27 that Turkish President Recep Erdogan in a phone conversation apologized to Russian President Vladimir Putin for downing its military jet that flew into the Turkish territory on Nov. 24.
But on the next day the press service of the Turkish president said
there was no apology. Two days after the alleged apology, Russian
authorities said they were going to lift the tourism ban on Turkey,
introduced in late 2015 due to a terrorism danger.
It happened on the
next day after a terrorist attack killed 42 people in Istanbul airport.
