Turkey denies the claim that it shot down an Armenian warplane

Director of Communications Fahrettin Altun stated that the claim that “the SU-25 aircraft belonging to Armenia was shot down by a Turkish F-16” is “absolutely untrue”.

In his statement to Bloomberg, the Director of Communications Altun said, “The claim that Turkey ‘shot down Armenian warplane’ is absolutely untrue. Rather than resorting to such cheap propaganda acts, Armenia should immediately withdraw from the territories it occupied.”
