"Turkish-Russian relations have gone through some difficult times, but it had been improving and I think it improved more after the coup attempted inside Turkey. Erdogan had been suspecting many countries of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation), including the US. And you remember at the time Obama sent the Vice President to try to appeal to the Turks who were very angry, Turkish-Russian relations were improving and there was an expected meeting and, all of a sudden, this incident happened. And, I think we are reading it that it targeted the bilateral relations and so they have affirmed that the relationship will remain strong. The Turkish government offered immediate participation of Russian investigators into this case, and I think also that the decision by Putin that this case also is referred to the UN Security Council, shows that he is suspecting something else - that the man who did it, the killer, is a front for some kind of forces."

"We had the experience of the returnees from Afghanistan, Chechnya, Bosnia and so it is possible that you will get a wave, a new wave of terrorism, and what we saw yesterday may be the beginning of this wave of people taking revenge. It could be Syrian refugees, it could be Islamist anywhere, we have seen what happened in Berlin for example, and so I don't think this is the end, I think we are entering into a big wave of terrorism coming from, as result of what happened in Syria."
An Egyptian analyst of politics and sociology said on Tuesday that yesterday's assassination of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov in Ankara was an attempt to disrupt Turkish-Russian relations.
Dr Saeed Sadek, Political Sociology Professor at Future University in Cairo, said the two countries' subsequent actions, including allowing Russian investigators into the case, suggests that the bilateral relationship will continue
However Sadek suggested that Putin's decision to raise the matter at the UN Security Council indicates the Russians may think that the lone killer is a "front for some kind of forces".
Karlov was shot dead Monday evening as he delivered a speech at a photo exhibition in the Turkish capital, Ankara.
His attacker, Mevlut Mert Altintas, a 22-year-old member of Ankara's riot police squad who was later killed by the police, shouted slogans about the battered Syrian city of Aleppo during the attack.
Sadek also said that the incident could be an indicator of more "revenge" attacks as part of a "new wave of terorrism" as a result of countries' involvement in the Syrian conflict.
