Turkey and Israel held a fresh round of talks Thursday in an effort to normalize ties after relations were partially frozen five years ago, says Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
“Meetings with Israel have been taking place for a while and they are continuing today,” Davutoglu says in Ankara.
“If our demands are received favourably, then the next steps will be clear and the necessary announcements will be made to the public.”
An Israeli official confirms the meeting was taking place, but its location was not made public. Previous meetings are believed to have been conducted in Geneva.
