The downing of a Russian aircraft over Syria is a very serious incident, a UK Foreign Office spokesperson said Tuesday, adding that London has been clarifying the details.

LONDON (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, the Russian Sukhoi Su-24 fighter jet carrying two people crashed on the Syrian border with Turkey. Ankara claims Turkish F-16s shot down the plane because it violated the country’s airspace. Contrary to Ankara’s accusations, the Russian Defense Ministry said the Russian jet did not violate Turkish airspace.

“A Russian air force jet was shot down near the Turkish-Syrian border this morning. We are seeking further details urgently. Clearly this is a very serious incident,” the spokesperson told RIA Novosti, added that it would be “unwise to comment further until we have more certainty on the facts.”
