Turkish-Israeli detente contingent on Gaza ceasefire, official says (ELHANAN MILLER, August 17, 2015, Times of Israel)

In the extensive al-Resalah interview, held on the heels of a visit by Hamas political chief Khaled Mashaal to Ankara last week, Aktay said Turkey is discussing with the government of Greek Cyprus the establishment of a waystation sea port, meant to deliver goods to the Gaza Strip under international supervision. He predicted that an agreement would be reached early next year.

Aktay said that in addition to Turkey's demand for an official Israeli apology and financial compensation for the Mavi Marmara victims' families, it expects "a lifting of the Gaza siege in all its forms."

He noted that Turkey has committed itself to building Gaza's seaport and airport once Israel agrees to their construction.
