President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday approved a normalization deal with Israel recently passed by the Turkish parliament, the Daily Sabah reports. The deal is expected to restore diplomatic relations between the two countries, which will exchange ambassadors in the next few weeks. The law regarding the approval of the agreement between Turkey and Israel over compensation has been submitted to the prime minister for promulgation, according to the presidency. Relations between Turkey and Israel declined in 2010 following an Israeli naval raid on a Turkish aid ship en route to deliver humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip. The attack killed 10 activists. Turkey’s parliament approved the normalization deal on August 20, and it had already been approved by Israel’s government.
