Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has apologized for the downing of a Russian military jet on the Turkey-Syria border, a Kremlin spokesman said.

He said that Erdogan sent a message to President Vladimir Putin expressing "sympathy and deep condolences" to the family of the killed pilot, BBC reported.

Turkey had angered Moscow by failing to apologize for the incident in November.

Russia responded by imposing trade sanctions and suspending Russian package tours to Turkey.

Putin said at the time the restrictions would not be lifted until Russia received an apology.
