Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Saturday said that Israel is not interested in a conflict with Turkey, but is also not ready "to wave a white flag" before Ankara.

Speaking in an interview with Channel 2, Lieberman said that Israel's actions have been and will continue to be guided by international law. The foreign minister added that the Palmer Commission report on the raid of the Mavi Marmara clearly stated that Israel's actions and the blockade of Gaza were legal.

Lieberman stated that he hoped normalization with Turkey could be regained and that he hopes Turkey will also see such a normalization as being in Ankara's best interest.

The foreign minister confirmed that he would be traveling to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly later this month.
