Moscow has recovered the black box of the Russian jet downed by Turkey last month and will analyse it with foreign specialists, President Vladimir Putin says.

"I ask you not to open it for the time being," Putin told defence minister Sergei Shoigu at a meeting during which he was presented with the black box, Russian news agencies report.

"Open it only together with foreign experts, carefully determine everything."
