MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Tuesday that one should not think it possible to mend Russia's strained relations with Turkey in a few days after Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan apologized for the downing of a Russian military plane.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Erdogan will hold a telephone conversation at Moscow's initiative on Wednesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with journalists.
