Russian warplane violates Turkish airspace for a second time

A Russian warplane violated Turkey's airspace for a second time on Sunday, said the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

The ministry summoned the Russian ambassador late on Monday to protest against the violation.

Turkish jets were scrambled after a Russian warplane violated Turkey's air space on Saturday but Russia blamed a "navigational error".

The Cold War adversaries believe in different solutions to end Syria's civil war.

Turkey's belief is that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has to go for the conflict to end whereas Russia backs the Syrian leader. Turkey, a Nato member, has called the Russian strikes a "grave mistake".

Jeremy Corbyn has urged activists to engage in "civilised debate" and not "personal abuse" after ugly scenes at demonstrations outside the Conservative Party conference.

The demonstration, involving about 60,000 people, was largely peaceful but some activists spat at journalists entering the Manchester Central venue and police made four arrests.

Nato: Russia should concentrate on fighting Islamic State

Nato has told Russia to stop its attacks on civilians and Syrian rebels and concentrate on fighting Islamic State.

Nato said in a statement: "Allies call on the Russian Federation to immediately cease its attacks on the Syrian opposition and civilians, to focus its efforts on fighting ISIL, and to promote a solution to the conflict through a political transition."

Allies strongly protest these violations of Turkish sovereign airspace, and condemn these incursions into and violations of NATO airspace. Allies also note the extreme danger of such irresponsible behaviour. They call on the Russian Federation to cease and desist, and immediately explain these violations.

Allies call on the Russian side to take all necessary measures to ensure that such violations do not take place in the future.
