Ankara is in the process of normalising its relations with Jerusalem, causing a surprise in the eastern Mediterranean, given that according to information, officials of the ministries of foreign affairs of Israel and Turkey have reached a preliminary agreement on the resumption of diplomatic relations.
The agreement consists of five key points and turns the tables in the energy map as it provides for the construction of a gas pipeline from Israel to Turkey.
According to Turkish newspaper Hürriyet, Israel will pay $20 million as compensation to the relatives of the 10 dead Turks aboard the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, in 2010, which was raided by special forces of the Israeli army.
In return, Turkey will close the file of the issue and withdraw all charges against Israel.
