The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) congratulated Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday for a phone call between him and Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, in which Netanyahu apologized for a 2010 incident involving a Turkish Gaza-bound flotilla.

ADL National Director Abe Foxman applauded the "restoration of relations" between two of "America's most reliable allies in the region," and thanked US President Barack Obama for his "direct facilitation" that led to the unexpected reconciliation, during his visit to Israel.

"The long friendship and mutual cooperation between Israel and Turkey has been beneficial for both countries and an important model for partnership between Muslim nations in the region and Israel," added Foxman.
