"I made clear that NATO remains strongly committed to Turkey’s security. I will convene a meeting of the North Atlantic Council later today to discuss the situation, stated NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. "Russia’s actions are not contributing to the security and stability of the region," he noted in a video, released by NATO official YouRube channel.

"I call on Russia to fully respect NATO airspace and to avoid escalating tensions with the Alliance. I urge Russia to take the necessary steps to align its efforts with those of the international community in the fight against ISIL," highlighted NATO Secretary General. 

Russian military aircraft violated the airspace of Turkey near the Syrian border. Turkish Foreign Ministry summoned Russian ambassador in Ankara to express its protest against crossing Turkish border by Russian military aircraft.
