Peres-Gul meeting canceled over Israel's refusal to apologize for raid

The meeting between the Israeli and Turkish presidents was canceled due to Shimon Peres' refusal to apologize for the raid on the Gaza-bound the flotilla. The Turks, who initiated the meeting, conditioned it with an Israeli apology – a term unacceptable by Israel.


Deputy Foreign Minister Daniel Ayalon, who is currently in New York said: "Israel is not the one who should apologize, but the Turks." (Yitzhak Benhorin, Ney York)
