Davutoglu also said that discussions were taking place in the wake of the incident, which has sent Ankara's relations with Moscow to their worst in recent memory."The necessary discussions are now taking place," he wrote in the newspaper. "While the measures to defend our territory will remain in place, Turkey will work with Russia and our allies to calm tensions."
