Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made "a call out to humanity," in an interview with Time magazine on Tuesday, saying that the Palestinians cannot be left to struggle any longer and countries that do not recognize their demands for statehood "will never be able to settle their accounts with history."

Addressing Turkey's deteriorating relations with Israel, Erdogan said that ties would have remained strong had Israel not "victimized the positive relations between the two countries with [its 2010 raid] on the Mavi Marmara."

The prime minister continued to insist on his earlier conditions for normalization of ties - an Israeli apology and compensation to the families of the Turks who died on the flotilla and the lifting of the embargo on Gaza.
