According to a recent BBC report, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned Russia’s President Vladimir Putin not to “play with fire” over his country’s downing of a Russian jet.

Erdogan is refusing to apologize to Putin over the tense events where Syrian backed rebels using American arms blew up a Russian rescue helicopter responding to a downed Russian fighter jet that was shot down by Turkish military forces.

In fact, Erdogan has accused Putin of slander for insinuating that Turkey buys oil from ISIS.
