Turkish Deputy Prime Minister on Monday said Turkey has entered into talks with Israel regarding compensation for the families of the victims of the deadly 2010 Gaza flotilla raid, AFP reported.
"Officials delegated by the two sides will work on the compensation issue. We gave the kick-start for it today," AFP quoted Bulent Arinc as telling reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting.
"This is a big success of Turkish foreign policy," Arinc said.
He added that Turkey's foreign minister "held talks with the other party and expressed the necessity to swiftly solve the issue," AFP quoted the deputy prime minister as saying.
