Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Ya'alon said on Wednesday that Turkey's insistence on an Israeli apology for last year's Gaza flotilla raid does not allow reconciliation talk to progress, Israel Radio reported. 

In an interview on the Reshet Bet radio program "This morning", Minister Ya'alon said that Ankara continues to demand an apology, payment of reparations to victims, and the removal of the Gaza blockade, which even the United Nations has authorized as legal.

Israel and Turkey have been holding reconciliation talks for a few weeks trying to end the diplomatic crisis resulting from last year's Gaza flotilla raid.
