Foreign Ministry: No Further Apology to Turkey

Israeli Foreign Ministry officials made it clear Wednesday evening that no further apology will be made to Turkey over the slighting of the Turkish Ambassador.

"There will not be another apology. What was said by Deputy Foreign Minister last night was enough, given the circumstances,” Foreign Ministry officials said.

Turkey threatened that if there is no apology from Israel, she will bring home her ambassador. The row started when Turkey broadcast a second anti-Israel TV series on national TV.
