Defense Minister Ehud Barak told UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon that Israel agrees in principal to the establishment of a UN flotilla probe committee to investigate the incidents surrounding the IDF raid on the Turkish aid ship in May, Israel Radio reported Monday.

Barak made the announcement during his recent trip to New York.

Former New Zealand prime minister Geoffrey Palmer was expected to head the committee along with representatives from the US, the UN, Israel and Turkey.
