Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan spoke to French television station France 24 on Wednesday,and said again that in order for relations between Israel and Turkey to improve, Israel must apologise for the Mavi Marmara incident, and pay compensation.

According to AFP, he said "Israel is responsible for the current state of Turkish-Israeli relations."

The relationship between the two countries soured after the May 31 Gaza-bound flotilla was intercepted by the IDF, leaving 9 Turks dead.
