SECRETARY-GENERAL WELCOMES RESTORATION OF RELATIONS BETWEEN ISRAEL AND TURKEY


The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

The Secretary-General welcomes that the Governments of Israel and Turkey have agreed to restore normal relations between them, and appreciates the role of United States President [Barack] Obama in reaching this positive outcome. Assisting Israel and Turkey in restoring their good relations had been a core objective of the Secretary-General’s efforts in the aftermath of the May 2010 flotilla incident. Today’s announcement is an important and hopeful signal for the stability of the region.
