The breakdown in relations between Turkey and Russia is temporary, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said late Friday.
In a radio interview, Maria Zakharova was asked if the row between Moscow and Ankara was temporary. "Certainly," she replied.
Russia imposed economic sanctions on Turkey following the shooting down of a Russian warplane over the Turkey-Syria border in November.
Ranging from food to travel, the sanctions were imposed after Nov. 24.
In December, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order to extend the sanctions.
