WASHINGTON – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stressed the importance of Israel reaching a path to reconciliation with Turkey during an hour-long meeting with Defense Minister Ehud Barak Thursday, according to a statement from Barak’s office.

The issue also came up in talks Barak held earlier in the day at the White House with Vice President Joe Biden and National Security Advisor Tom Donilon.

Washington – which believes a strong US-Israel-Turkey triangle in the region is critical for Middle East stability -- has brought pressure to bear both on Jerusalem and Ankara to find a formula to end the crisis over the Mavi Marmara, according to diplomatic officials.
