Turkey's foreign minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, confirmed to CNN on Sunday reports that Israel and Turkey were discussing how to repair the relationship between the governments that broke down over Israel's raid on the Mavi Marmara ship.

Nine Turkish citizens died when Israeli Navy commandoes boarded the Mavi Marmara, which claimed to be carrying humanitarian aid, on May 31, 2010 after warning the ship not to sail into waters near the Gaza Strip in circumvention of Israel's naval blockade of the coastal strip.

Turkey has demanded that Israel apologize for the raid, compensate the families of those killed and halt its blockade of Gaza. Israel has offered to fulfill the first two of the requests.
