Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz  was attending a United Nations conference in Turkey on Wednesday. The conference was related to the Barcelona Convention, a spokeswoman for the minister confirmed.

Relations between the two states went sour after a 2010 IDF raid on a humanitarian aid flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip, resulted in the death of nine Turkish activists, making any high level visit between the two countries a rare occurrence.
