Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Monday that Israel's aim today is to normalize relations with Turkey and there is no intention to deepen the divide exists between the two countries.

During a visit to the Elbit factory in Haifa Barak said Turkey is an important state and Israel will not turn differences of opinion into disputes. 

Barak was responding to comments made Sunday by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman who said that Ankara’s demand for an apology over the Mavi Marmara incident is “beyond chutzpa.”
