ANKARA- A "certain point" was reached in normalizing Turkey's relations with Israel in talks on Sunday, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said on Monday, after officials said a deal had been reached to end a rift dating back to 2010.

"A certain point was reached in talks on June 26 and this will be announced in a simultaneous statement by both prime ministers at 1 pm (1000 GMT)," Kurtulmus told reporters during a break from a cabinet meeting.

Relations between the two countries crumbled in 2010 after the Israeli navy killed 10 Turkish pro-Palestinian activists involved in an aid flotilla that tried to breach an Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip.
