Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Sunday that while Israel had important strategic ties with Turkey, it also had "difficult" disagreements with the country over several issues, including policies regarding Hamas. Ties have been particularly strained between the two counties recently due to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's criticism of the IDF operation in Gaza and his public spat with President Shimon Peres at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday. Livni told Israel Radio that she expected Turkey to respect Israel's position despite "hard" pictures coming out of Gaza and the numerous anti-Israel demonstrations in the country.
