(Worthy News) - Turkey is demanding that Israel permit unfettered access to the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip as one of the conditions before it renews diplomatic ties with Israel, according to a report in Saturday editions of the Hurriyet Daily News.
The report states that the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will not accept any Israeli restrictions on the flow of Turkish aid to the Palestinian coastal enclave.
Turkish negotiators have reportedly presented this demand to Israel in negotiations over the restoration of diplomatic ties that were broken off following the crisis precipitated by an Israeli raid on a blockade-running flotilla bound for Gaza in 2010. [ Source ]
