FM: Ankara pleased with delivery of humanitarian supplies to Gaza Strip
Ankara is satisfied with that the UN assumed responsibility for the delivery of humanitarian goods of "Flotilla of Freedom" to the Gaza Strip, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Burak Ozugergin said, noting that the decision was taken by the parties related to the subject, and reflects the positive developments in terms of humanitarian action, the TRT Russian website reported.
Ozugergin said the UN's constructive position in this matter is positively evaluated by Turkey.
The decision on delivery of humanitarian cargo by the United Nations was taken following the meeting, held in Turkey with the participation of representatives of the Humanitarian Aid Fund and authorized persons of the UN.
Meanwhile, initiatives to establish an international commission to investigate the Israeli attacks on human ships following the Gaza Strip are underway. Turkish President Abdullah Gul said an investigation of the incident by the Israeli commission "is unacceptable for Turkey."
During a meeting with representatives of the Turkish media held on the second day of Gul's official visit to South Korea, Gul noted that Turkey has defined a road map in its relations with Israel, which will be unveiled by the government.
The meeting of the Turkish Defense Industry Executive Committee held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, did not take any decision to impose sanctions against Israel, stemming from the fact that the Turkish-Israeli agreements in the sphere of defense industry had not been signed at the state level, but at company level. In this connection, cancellation of agreements is not included in the powers of the executive committee.
