Efforts to lift Gaza blockade ongoing: Erdogan

In an interview with Israel’s Channel 2, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said efforts still remained underway to see Israel’s decade-long blockade on the Gaza Strip lifted.

During the interview, broadcast Monday evening, Erdogan noted that Turkey had set three conditions for normalizing ties with the Jewish state following a six-year split prompted by Israel’s attack on a Gaza-bound aid ship that left 10 Turkish activists dead in international waters.

"Two of these conditions have been met; namely, an Israeli apology for the attack and compensation for the families of the victims," he said.

Lifting the Israeli siege on Gaza, he stressed, had been Turkey’s third condition for normalizing ties.

"Efforts remain underway to fulfill this condition," Erdogan said, going on to note "the strong possibility that the blockade will be lifted".
