ANKARA, -- Turkey announced on Wednesday that its relations with Israel will not return to normalcy unless the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip is lifted.

Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmed Dawood Oglu said that talks with members of the United Nations would begin on Thursday to form an international committee to investigate the attack on the Freedom Flotilla.

At a news conference after his visit to the USA to discuss Israel's aggression on the Freedom Flotilla, Oglu said that future Turkish relations with Israel depend on Israel's position in the coming period.

He also demanded the unconditional release of all Turkish citizens detained by Israel, and asked Tel Aviv to agree to an international investigation over the Flotilla events.

During an earlier meeting with journalists in Washington, Oglu said that Israel's aggression against the Freedom Flotilla shocked the Turkish people psychologically as much as September 11 shocked the American people.
 
He added, "We expect the USA to show solidarity with us…and I'm not happy with the comments made by the US yesterday."
