The Turkish government officially demanded Israel not to intercept or obstruct the Freedom Flotilla, heading to the Gaza Strip to deliver humanitarian supplies, and to stop its threats against the Flotilla and the activists on board.

Turkey is one of the countries heavily participating in the Freedom Flotilla. The government in Istanbul demanded Israel to lift the illegal siege on Gaza.

Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutolu, stated during a press conference after a UN meeting that his government is in constant talks with Israel regarding the flotilla.

He added that it is necessary to act in order to decrease tension, and that Israel must lift the siege on Gaza.

Davutolu further stated he believes Israel will use its wisdom in dealing with the issue and the humanitarian flotilla heading to Gaza.

He added that urgent aid must reach Gaza, and that the countries must act to find the proper means to ensure aid makes its way to the coastal region.
