Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Erdogan said that they would not take the diplomatic crisis between Turkey and Israel any further.
Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak told a news conference in Ankara that Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon's ill-treatment of Turkey's ambassador in Tel Aviv, Oguz Celikkol, was a mistake. "We consider Barak's statements to be satisfactory. We will not take the issue further," Erdogan said.
"Turkey continues establishing sound relations with East and West, North and South. We want to have reputable relations with all countries," he said.
