Turkish FM: Israel must take steps to show it wants peace

Israel must take steps to show that it wants a resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Wednesday. Speaking during a a news conference with visiting Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, Davutoglu said the time had come "for Israel to openly display its will for peace if it has it." He did not elaborate. Turkey maintains good relations with Arab nations as well as Israel. In recent years, it sought to play a more active role in the Middle East. It has mediated several rounds of now stalled indirect peace talks between Syria and Israel.
