Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is in the Russian city of St. Petersburg for a face-to-face meeting with his counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

It's the first time the two leaders have met since Turkish interceptors blasted a Russian warplane out of the skiesover Syria in November.

The incident, in which one of the air crew was killed as he parachuted from the aircraft, provoked a diplomatic firestorm, with a furious Kremlin vowing retribution.

A second Russian serviceman was killed trying to rescue the other crew member on the ground.

"Today's loss for us was like a stab in the back delivered by the accomplices of terrorists," President Putin said on state television at the time.

"It will have serious consequences for Russia's relations with Turkey, " he promised.
