Sergey Lavrov says he will meet with Mevlut Cavusoglu in Belgrade on the sidelines of an Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe meeting “to hear what he has to say.”

Lavrov says he spoke to Cavusoglu by telephone the day after the Russian aircraft was shot down, but heard only “just some excuses.”
