Turkey, Israel have yet to mend ties

May 28, 2013 04:18

Turkey and Israel have yet to fully restore relations in spite of the growing Syrian crisis that has threatened both their borders.

“The process is still ongoing,” an Israeli official told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

But the Prime Minister’s Office would not comment on whether more talks were scheduled to finalize details to restore ties.

An Israeli delegation traveled to Ankara in April and in the beginning of May, a Turkish delegation spent the day in Jerusalem.

At the time, National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror said optimistically that Israel and Turkey would exchange ambassadors shortly after an agreement on compensation over the Mavi Marmara victims was completely hashed out.
