Israel’s environment minister is in Turkey for a UN-sponsored conference. It is the first time a member of the Israeli cabinet has visited the country since 2010.

Relations were soured when Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish activists three years ago when their vessel violated an Israeli blockade on Hamas ruled Gaza.

Ankara has stressed that Amir Peretz has not been invited by the Turkish government.
