Planned Putin-Erdogan summit in Russia canceled, says Kremlin

MOSCOW A bilateral summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan planned for Dec. 15 in St. Petersburg will not now happen, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

The summit was agreed upon during a meeting between the two men in Turkey on the sidelines of a G-20 summit last month which predated Ankara's shooting down of a Russian military jet near the Syrian-Turkish border.
