Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday said that during his recent trip to the United States the Turks wanted him to meet with their foreign minister and ambassador in Washington.

Barak spoke at the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee explaining that it was clear to him that the meeting was aimed at presenting claims against Israel and therefore did not agree to holding such a meeting.

Addressing the recent meeting between Industry, Trade, and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu Barak said that the meeting was bad timing.
