Turkey is ready to pay compensation to Moscow for the downed Russian Su-24 combat jet near the Turkish border in Syria, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said.

"The letter's content is clear. We expressed our regret and we will pay the compensation [for the downed jet] if it is necessary. Both countries are seeking to normalize the relations. To my mind, we have reached some progress," Yildirim told the TRT television broadcaster, Sputnik News reports.

On Monday the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, has received a letter from the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which he apologized for the death of the Russian pilot who was killed when a Russian jet was downed over the Syrian-Turkish border last November.
