Kremlin says Turkey apologized to Putin over plane incident

MOSCOW - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has written to Russian leader Vladimir Putin to apologize over the shooting down of a Russian air force jet by Turkey's military, a Kremlin spokesman said on Monday.
After the Russian jet was shot down in November last year near the Syrian-Turkish border, Russia imposed trade restrictions on Ankara. Putin had said they would not be lifted unless Erdogan apologized over the incident.
There was no immediate comment from Ankara.
