The US State Department said that it regretted the ongoing diplomatic row between Turkey and Israel over the IDF interception of a Turkish Gaza-bound flotilla in which nine activists - eight Turkish and one American of Turkish descent - were killed.

"We regret that prior to the publication of the report they were unable to reach agreement on steps that might have helped overcome their differences," US State Department  spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said according to a Chinese Xinhua news report.

Nuland said that the US continues to hope that the governments in Ankara and Jerusalem will continue to work for a complete resolution and mend the "longstanding relationship."
