 Issues such as Israel’s offering an apology for the Mavi Marmara attack, the Turkish government’s attitude, latest developments on the compensation issue to be paid to families of the victims and Mavi Marmara trials were discussed during the program.

“The word ‘trust’ cannot be used together with the word ‘Israel.’ We don’t trust Israel. We don’t recognize it as a state, either. Israel is an occupying power in Palestine. The borders of Palestine are all the land occupied by Israel,” he said.

Underlining that they do not recognize Israel as an authority, Yıldırım said: “It will carry humanitarian aid to Gazans continuously. It is ready to go to Gaza anytime.”
