Israel intends to reject an international inquiry into Monday's raid on a flotilla aiming to break the Gaza blockade, Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren said Sunday in an interview with Fox News.

"We are rejecting an international commission. We are discussing with the Obama administration a way in which our inquiry will take place," Oren said. Regarding claims that an internal commission of inquiry would not yield credible results, he stated, "Israel is a democratic nation. Israel has the ability and the right to investigate itself, not to be investigated by any international board."

Meanwhile on Sunday, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and UK Foreign Secretary William Hague called for a "credible and transparent" probe of what had transpired, adding that "there should be an international presence at minimum."
