MK Chetboun: Turkish Relations Important But No Apology


Member of Knesset Yonatan Chetboun (Jewish Home Party) met with a delegation of Turkish businessmen and students who are currently visiting Israel. "Relations between Israel and Turkey are important," MK Chertboun stated, "but certainly not conditional on an apology for an act of terrorism," he stated. He was referring to the official government apology for the Mavi Marmara incident in which a flotilla attempted to cross Israeli waters with supplies headed for Hamas controlled Gaza. The Israeli navy was attacked by militants when stopping the vessels.
