Repairing ties between Turkey and Israel would allow both countries to work with America to combat threats from Iran and Syria, United States Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday at an Istanbul press conference.

Kerry spoke in advance of Monday’s meeting in Ankara between an Israeli delegation led by National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror and Turkish officials, who hope to find a way to fully restore diplomatic ties between the two countries.

Kerry asked Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to delay his planned trip to Gaza at the end of May in order not to undermine reconciliation efforts between Turkey and Israel, as well as Washington’s renewed drive to rekindle frozen Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

If allies such as Israel and Turkey put aside differences, they can stand up to mutual threats – one of which is Iran, Kerry told reporters.
