Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon hopes that Turkey is not really considering cutting off ties with Israel, he said in an Israel Radio interview Tuesday morning.

We should hope that logic and interests will triumph in Ankara so it will be possible to get Turkey-Israel relations back on track, Ayalon said.

He also added that he is not afraid of threats and that Israel will use a policy of reciprocity. If there won't be a Turkish ambassador in Israel, there won't be an Israeli ambassador in Turkey.

Ayalon also mentioned that he believes Turkey's geo-political situation demands extra humility from it.
