According to Turkish media sources, the country is preventing Israel from attending a critical NATO summit in Chicago, to be held from May 20 to 21, despite pressure from US and other European powers.

“There will be no Israeli presence at the NATO meeting unless they issue a formal apology and pay compensation for the Turkish citizens their commandos killed in international waters” a senior Turkish official has commented referring to Mavi Marmara incident.

Moreover, Turkey has vetoed Israeli attempts to deepen its relations with NATO or to open an office in Brussels.

Turkey’s foreign minister has stated, “ The army of a country which you call a partner killed our citizens upon a political order given by its administration. We do not call this kind of country a partner.”
