Turkey, Israeli Regime Close to Finalizing Reconciliation: Report

Hurriyet Daily reported that Turkey’s FM said normalization efforts between the Israeli regime and Turkey were near completion as the fate of Gaza remains unresolved

Alwaght- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan convened a cabinet meeting last week to discuss reconciliation with the Israeli regime in addition to Ankara’s part in the Syrian conflict and its ties with Egypt, the Turkish daily Hurriyet reported Monday.

A framework agreement published by Israeli Daily Haaretz did not include the lifting of the siege as a precondition and it is highly unlikely that the Israelis will concede to such a demand.
