Introduction

In separate ceremonies in Jerusalem and Ankara yesterday (28 June), Director General of the Israeli Foreign Ministry Dore Gold and Turkish Undersecretary for foreign affairs, Feridun Hadi Sinirlioğlu, signed a reconciliation agreement between their two countries. The agreement – which has been approved by Israel’s security cabinet – renews diplomatic relations between the countries and puts an end to the six-year hiatus that erupted following the death of nine Turkish civilians during a raid by Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara, a ship that was part of the flotilla to the Gaza Strip, in May 2010.

The BICOM research team has produced a Strategic Assessment of the landmark reconciliation. Download the report in full below.
