ANKARA - An Israeli delegation will visit Turkey for the first time in three years next week in another sign of thawing relations since the United States brokered a breakthrough in March, but any further advancement in ties was expected to be incremental.

Israel apologised to Turkey over the killing of nine Turks in a 2010 naval raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla and the two agreed to normalise relations in phone calls arranged by US President Barack Obama on his recent trip to Israel.

Brokering a rapprochement could bolster US influence in the Middle East, help ease Israel's diplomatic isolation as it confronts the challenge of Iran's nuclear programme and improve regional coordination over Syria's two-year-old civil war.
