Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Wednesday that aid sent to Turkey following a deadly earthquake was humanitarian and would be sent any time it is needed, but also could help end the deterioration in relations between the two countries.

The aid, he said, "could also contribute, in time, to relieving tensions and turning a new leaf" between the two countries, the defense minister said at an IDF officers' graduation ceremony at the Bahad 1 training base in the Negev.
