ANKARA: The body of the pilot of the downed Russian plane will be handed over to Moscow, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Sunday.
The body of the Russian will be prepared in accordance with tradition before being given to Moscow, Xinhua quoted Davutoglu as saying in Ankara before his departure for the EU-Turkey Summit.
Two Turkish F-16s downed the Russian jet on November 24 alleging it had intruded into Turkish airspace. Moscow has denied any intrusion, saying it was engaged in bombing IS rebels in Syria.
The pilot and the navigator ejected safety, but the pilot was shot dead. The navigation is in a Syrian hospital.
Good sign of cooperation among the nations to bring peaceful atmosphere
Hope your sacrifice does not go waste!
Turkey will now listen Russian Music for what they have done. Bad days have come for turkey. Even US can not save them from Russia's ire.
Ehhh !! What the hell. The pilot ejected and landed in Syria. How come the body went to Turkey. Clear proof Turkey is helping FSA and ISIS.
RIP to the Pilot

Govt. of the Turkey should beg apology from the Russian for this incidence. And should not try to happen it next. We do not want to see that the third World War is beginning from the Middle East.....
turkey political leadership will heavily pay the price for their unprovoked attack
Russia feels that by downing Russian planes deliberately Turkey has sized with ISIS and weakened the alliance against ISIS
This is the work of not Turkey but CIA.
The pilot was shot dead by the syrian rebels after he ejected. Turkey must have got his dead body to prove he ejected in its territory!
Their will be wild protest and reaction after body of pilot reaches Russia.
