ANKARA: Turkey is one or two meetings away from normalising ties with Israel and it is important that Israel lifts obstacles against aid for Palestine and Gaza, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday.

Cavusoglu made the comments in an interview with state broadcaster TRT Haber. The former allies have been at loggerheads since Israeli commandos stormed a Turkish ship in an aid flotilla to Gaza, killing 10 Turks.

Israel has rule out ending a sea and air blockade of the Palestinian territory.
