Turkey's foreign minister says there has been some progress in improving Turkish-Israeli relations but Israel has not yet fulfilled all conditions for normalizing ties. Under a US-brokered rapprochement in March, Israel apologized to Turkey for the deaths aboard the Mavi Maramara and agreed to pay compensation.
But Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told a news conference that there are three conditions that are important to Turkey. He said two have not been fulfilled yet – compensation to victims of the attack and ending Israeli restrictions "against Palestine." (AP)
