The Prime Minister's Office denied reports stating that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was expected to meet with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a conference in Athens later this month, Channel 10 reported on Saturday.

Turkish daily newspaper Hurriyet reported that Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou invited both Netanyahu and Erdogan to a conference scheduled to take place in Athens on October 22. According to the report, the meeting was an attempt to repair the tense relations that have existed between Turkey and Israel since the May 31 raid of a Gaza-bound aid ship in which nine pro-Palestinian Turkish activists were killed by Israeli naval commandos.
