ALMATY (Reuters) - Russia's close ally Kazakhstan on Monday urged Moscow and Istanbul to create a bilateral commission to jointly investigate the downing of the Russian bomber jet by Turkey which has strained relations between the two countries.

"There is a need to form this commission in order to find and punish those responsible and restore the relations," Nazarbayev said, delivering his annual address to the nation.
