It is appropriate to say that such an assault on an envoy in the line of obligation remains a generally uncommon occasion as verifiable the aggressors have for the most part assaulted US delegates.
The Russian President said in his statement “This murder is clearly a provocation aimed at undermining the improvement and normalization of Russian-Turkish relations, as well as undermining the peace process in Syria promoted by Russia, Turkey, Iran and other countries interested in settling the conflict in Syria,” Putin said in a statement on Monday evening.
The ongoing Russian military and air force strikes in Syria specially in Aleppo ignite the flames among the Turkish Muslims. The wave of agitation inside the Muslim world is creating the element of hate. The recent assassination of Russian ambassador in Turkey is going to add more fire in the relationships of Russia and Turkey.
Turkish President “I believe this is an attack on Turkey, the Turkish state and the Turkish people, and also a clear provocation … [in terms of]Turkish-Russian relations. I am sure our Russian friends also see this fact,” Erdogan said. ”Both Turkey and Russia have the will not to be deceived by this provocation.”
The statements from both the Presidents came in early hours of the assassination in order to de-escalate the tension and bring no harm to the bilateral relationships of Turkey and Russia.

Where Pakistan sees if something happens ?
This is not a child’s play or a wish of any one that where Pakistan stands in case of war between Russia and Turkey, said by foreign affairs experts.
We believe in war rather than diplomatic lobbing. Russia and Turkey are mature and hold a history, we (Pakistan) are new in terms of history, we don’t know how to draft a foreign letter and we think whom we will support in course of war ?, lashed by Senior retired foreign office.
Pakistan must bring its own house in order first and we have multiple outstanding issues which needed urgent focus rather than to put nose in others affairs, said by Foreign expert.
Pakistan had shifted its focus from USA to Russia, Turkey is loyal friend of Pakistan but Pakistan diplomatic lobbing and expertise lack in many areas. Pakistan should not try to close the box and become party to any country. The house of diplomacy is always open for those countries who think for their national interest first.
