Turkey and Israel prepare for the reinstatement of diplomatic relations

The process of the restoration of the diplomatic relations between Israel and Turkey, which had reached a critically low point after the invasion of Israeli commandos on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara off the coast of Gaza, appears to be entering its final stage.

According to Turkish newspaper Vatan, within the next 10 days, Turkey and Israel will finalise an agreement on compensation for the Israeli attack on the ship where nine people were killed. Israel reportedly agrees to pay damages amounting to $21 million to the families of the victims.
