The airspace around Incirlik has been reopened by Turkey, but the power is still cut. No word on whether or not movement on and off the base is still being blocked. There's also considerable discussion of Erdogan's demands that America extradite Fethullah Gulen, so the inference is that's what this had been about.

Turkey's been working on this meeting for some time:

Erdogan apologized to Putin, calling Russia a "friend and strategic partner," and also saying "we never had a desire or a deliberate intention to down an aircraft belonging to Russia." [2016/6/27]

Erdogan makes a phone call to Putin in an effort to improve relations, cooperation and trade. Russia lifts sanctions that had been placed on Turkey following last year's aircraft downing. [2016/06/29]

Turkey announced that a meeting has been arranged between Erdogan and Putin for the purpose of repairing relations between the two nations. [2016/7/5]

It's not like Putin is going to poison him, calm down man. Turkey has been trying to get back in a good light with Russia. Said they were sorry for shooting down the jet and everything.

Oh I hardly think he's going to be poisoned or anything. It's just that in light of recent events, people not accustomed to the current situation, I.e. people not following world events, Turkey is going to be viewed quite negatively for this action.

Not surprised at all. Until I see the President back in the Capitol this isn't over.

I imagine it's more economic than anything political, Russian tourists spend a lot of $$ in Turkey... my Uncle's family was vacationing there about 6 months ago :lol:

"Soldiers arrested for participating in an attempted military coup in Turkey told interrogators that they thought they were on exercises." "Only when people started to climb the tanks did we realize what was really going on."
