Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday described as "very weird," the diplomats sent by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhu to help negotiate a re-normaliztion of relations between the two countries. Ties between Turkey and Israel were strained following the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, in which IDF commandos killed nine Turkish citizens attempting to break the blockade on Gaza.

The Turkish prime minister, speaking to journalists on his return flight to Ankara from Berlin, reiterated his three demands for rehabilitating ties with Israel, Turkish daily Today's Zaman reported Friday.

“It is impossible that our relations will be fixed unless these demands are realized,” Erdoğan said, according to the report.
