Erdogan tried to reach Putin after Su-24 incident but failed

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with French TV station he could not get through to his counterpart Vladimir Putin after the incident with Russia's warplane on Tuesday.

According to Erdogan, the Turkish military would have acted differently if they had known for certain it was a Russian aircraft.

"If we had known it was a Russian plane, we would probably have warned it in a different way," the president said on air of France 24.
