Turkey can be key to Middle East peace process: US top diplomat

 

Turkey can play a major role in the Middle East peace process, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on April 7, describing it as a “vibrant and energized” country after meeting his Turkish counterpart, Ahmet Davutoğlu.

“Turkey can be a key, an important contribution to the process of peace in so many ways,” Kerry told reporters in a joint press conference. He was speaking in Istanbul two weeks after U.S. President Barack Obama brokered a thaw between Turkey and Israel, whose relations were frozen by the killing of nine Turkish citizens in the deadly Mavi Marmara raid in 2010.
