Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Friday that Turkey would support every step towards peace and assume a clear stance against any step that would endanger peace. Davutoglu responded to the questions of reporters at Ankara's Esenboga Airport prior to his departure for Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Asked to comment on relations with Israel, Davutoglu said, "unfortunately, attacks in Gaza stroke a heavy blow on the efforts for peace in the Middle East, particularly Israeli-Syrian talks carried out by Turkey. Thereby, it is not right to consider the relations on basis of the crisis symptoms as reflected in media today."

Davutoglu said there was a relationship of confidence between Turkey and Israel, adding that Turkey never gave credit to tension policies.
