Turkey, Israel set to hold another meeting for mending ties
Turkish and Israeli diplomats are set to meet in Switzerland on Feb 10 as part of ongoing negotiations for the reconciliation, Hurriyet Daily News reported.
Turkish diplomatic sources did neither confirm nor deny the reports but the Turkish private broadcaster NTV said Turkish Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu was on his way to Geneva to attend the meeting.
Diplomats of two countries have long been negotiating over a plan to normalize ruined relationship because of Israeli commandos' raid on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara flotilla. Israel officialy apologized to Turkey in 2013 over the killings of 10 Turkish citizens but discussions on how much compensation will be paid to the families of the victims and how Turkish access to Gaza will be provided in an unrestricted way have still been not clear.
