Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu commented on recent diplomatic developments between Turkey and Israel in an interview with Channel 1 that aired Friday evening.

Netanyahu rejected the notion that Israel would pay any form of compensation or damages to Turkey for the nine Turkish citizens who were killed in the boarding of the Mavi Marmara as it sought to break the IDF blockade on Gaza.

"These announcements bear no relation to what occurred [in the meeting]," said Netanyahu.
