Official: Turkey to "reduce" ties with Israel amid tension
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc Friday said that Turkey would "reduce" its ties with Israel after nine Turks were killed in a botched commando raid on aid ships heading to Gaza earlier this week, DPA reported.
Speaking in parliament, Arinc said economic and military ties would be reduced and all other deals with Israel would also be evaluated.
"We are serious on this issue. New cooperation will not start and relations with Israel will be reduced," Arinc said.
