      Clinton to Turks: Keep 'Open Door' for Israel


      U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged Turkey to repair its relationship with Israel, or at least to keep an “open door” and work on ways to restore good relations with Israel. "She encouraged Turkey to keep the door open," a senior U.S. official told reporters Monday. "We want to see them repair their relationship, so she encouraged them to avoid any steps that would close that door and on the contrary to actively seek ways that they can repair (their) important relationship with Israel."

      Turkey has not yet responded to Clinton's appeal.
