President Shimon Peres was meeting on Friday afternoon with his Turkish counterpart, Prime Minister Abdullah Gul in Copenhagen, on the sidelines of the UN climate conference. Tension between the two countries has grown since last winter's Operation Cast Lead. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has since harshly criticized Israel, calling on the UN to isolate the Jewish state.
