President Barack Obama has welcomed the telephone conversation between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan in which Mr Netanyahu apologised for errors that might have led to the Gaza flotilla deaths in 2010.
President Obama said: "The United States deeply values our close partnerships with both Turkey and Israel, and we attach great importance to the restoration of positive relations between them in order to advance regional peace and security.
"I am hopeful that today's exchange between the two leaders will enable them to engage in deeper cooperation on this and a range of other challenges and opportunities", he added.
