Erdogan says Moscow jeopardizing ties with Ankara

Following violations of Turkish airspace by Russian warplanes over the past few days, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that Moscow is putting its ties with Ankara at risk. 
"Our positive relationship with Russia is known. But if Russia loses a friend like Turkey, with whom it has been cooperating on many issues, it will lose a lot, and it should know that," he said at a news conference in Brussels with the Belgian prime minister.
Erdogan also said that his country would not stay patient regarding future intrusions by Russia.
