The president's comments came just hours after a senior Israeli air force delegation briefed their Russian counterparts on the findings of their probe into the loss of the aircraft by Syrian anti-aircraft fire during an Israeli airstrike on the coastal city of Latakia.
More than 20 Syrian anti-aircraft missiles were fired during the incident, the official said. "The IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) will continue to implement our strategic interests", the official said.
Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Thursday said Russian experts had confirmed the actions of Israeli pilots resulted in the downing of the aircraft by the Syrian air defenses and deaths of 15 Russian servicemen. The regime's minister for military affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, said Thursday that the regime would not stop such attacks, but would do more to "de-conflict" them with Russian forces.
"Our Russian counterparts had a few questions, those questions were answered", the official said. The incident threatened to derail the close security ties between Russian Federation and Israel.More news: May says European Union response to UK Brexit plan 'unacceptable'
The Russian military made no comment after Thursday's meetings with the Israeli delegation.
Israel says it was targeting a Syrian military facility where weapons manufacturing systems were "about to be transferred on behalf of Iran" to Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah.
But the Israeli delegation returned from Moscow Friday morning, contradicting the Al Mayadeen report.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly called Russian President Vladimir to express sorrow over the death of the plane's crew, blamed Syria and offered to share detailed data. "Our impression is that the discussions were professional and that the information was well accepted".More news: Trump says Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh is 'under assault'
"The president of Russian Federation urged the Israeli side not to allow such situations from now on", it added.
"There have been no changes to the deconfliction mechanism as a result of this unfortunate event", the military official said on condition of anonymity, referring to Monday's downing following Israeli air strikes.
He also disputed initial claims by the Russians that the Israelis had only warned them of their planned attack a minute before, and had used the Russian plane as a cover.
Initially the incident appeared likely to cause friction between Israel and Russian Federation, with the Defence Ministry in Moscow accusing Israel of indirectly causing it.More news: Arrested Demonstrating Support For Christine Blasey Ford
It also said "new information" on the incident would "emerge soon", without elaborating.
