The future of Turkey-Israel relations depends on Israel's actions, Reuters reported Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu saying Wednesday. If Israel ends the embargo on Gaza, Turkey would re-normalize its ties with Israel, he said.

If Israel does not release all the Turkish citizens it has capture by the end of the day, the Minister was quoted by Israel Radio saying, Turkey would reconsider its relationship with Israel.

The foreign minister reiterated that Turkey viewed the raid on the Gaza-bound flotilla as an international crime and would continue pushing for an independent inquiry into the incident.
