One byproduct of Israel’s apology to Turkey for operational errors that may have caused loss of life on the Mavi Marmara could be cooperation in the energy field, Turkey’s Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said Tuesday.

“We should acknowledge that it is a political issue,” Yildiz was quoted by Today’s Zaman as saying in reference to the apology at an energy conference in Ankara, amid a slight decrease in public Turkish gloating over the issue.“The reason for the apology is not [common] energy projects, but the result of it can be energy projects,” he said.

“Within the process of normalization, after Israel has fulfilled its responsibilities towards our side, the project of transporting Israeli gas via Turkey could come onto the agenda.”
