Turkey: J'lem must respond to requests for better relations

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu reiterated on Thursday that Turkey would not upgrade relations with Israel, despite Israel's provision of humanitarian aid in the aftermath of a massive earthquake, Army Radio reported.
"Relations will only improve when Jerusalem will respond to the Turkish government's requests," Davutoglu  said.  "We distinguish between humanitarian and diplomatic relations."
The first of several civilian planes full of Israeli earthquake relief aid set off for Turkey on Wednesday, filled with seven prefabricated homes, warm clothes, blankets and mattresses.
