Turkey and Israel are reportedly moving closer to striking a reconciliation agreement that would end six years of a freeze in their bilateral ties.

In September 2010, Turkey suspended its military ties with Israel and expelled the Israeli envoy from Ankara over Tel Aviv’s refusal to apologize over its killing of 10 Turkish nationals aboard an aid vessel.

An agreement may now be on the horizon amid ongoing talks between the two sides in Switzerland.
