Calls by the US and the European Union's to the ship's captain to accept Israel's diversion requests legitimizes Israel's policy, said Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Wednesday morning to Israel Radio.

The determination that Israel demonstrated towards the previous aid ship, Mavi Marmara, also contributed to effective policy, Ayalon commented in a broadcast of "This Morning."

According to Ayalon, Israel can consider itself victorious in its handling of the Libyan aid ship.

In response to the possibility of Egypt inspecting the Libyan vessel's cargo, Ayalon said that Israel and Egypt share a common interest in preventing the arming of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
