Israel must end the blockade of the Gaza Strip if it is interested in ending the Gaza flotilla affair said Turkish President Abdullah Gul's senior advisor in an interview with the London based Arabic language daily Al-Sharq Al-awsat.

The advisor, Ershad Hurmuzlu, denied that Turkey is becoming a Muslim nation, saying his country was founded on the principles of democracy and secularism.

Hurmuzlu also denied claims that Turkey is acting against Israel and the Jews.

He added that it is now Israel's responsibility to act towards the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capitol city.
