FM: Ties with Turkey should not come at Israel's expense

Turkey's demand that Israel apologize for its raid on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara last year should not come at the expense of Israel's interests, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday.
"Improving relations with Turkey is in the interests of both countries, but this should not come only at the cost of Israeli interests," Lieberman said. He added that even if there is a "difference of opinions" within the government regarding an apology to Turkey, "Israel Beiteinu will not resign from the government."
