Turkey now says it will not pay compensation to Russia over the downing of a fighter jet last year.
This contradicts reports yesterday in which Ankara also expressed regret over the incident last November.
The russian bomber was shot down by the Turkish air force near the Syrian border in November 2015.
Reuters news agency says legal proceedings are underway in connection with the death of the pilot, but Ankara has dismissed talk of compensation.
