ISRAEL APOLOGISES TO TURKEY OVER FLOTILLA DEATHS

Muslim World

Israel agreed to restore full diplomatic relations with Turkey in a surprising turnaround on 22 March after apologising for a botched naval raid that resulted in the deaths of nine Turkish activists aboard an international flotilla bound for Gaza in 2010. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the breakthrough after a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The 20-minute phone call was brokered by visiting President Barack Obama shortly before he left Israel.

The announcement was an unexpected reversal by Netanyahu, who has repeatedly rejected calls to apologise. But the two countries’ joint interests, including fears that the Syrian civil war could spill over their respective borders, made the time ripe to mend relations. A statement from Erdogan’s office said Erdogan “renewed his support for international and regional efforts to find a lasting and comprising solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the two-state vision.”
