Foreign minister in Moscow says attack on jet appears to be 'a planned provocation'

Russia's foreign minister said on Wednesday that the downing of its fighter jet by Turkey the day before appeared to be "a planned provocation", but said the countries will not go to war over the incident.

"We have serious doubts about this being an unpremeditated act. It really looks like a planned provocation," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a news conference in Moscow after speaking with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu.
