Turkey suspends energy projects with Israel

Turkish Energy & Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz said on Thursday that Turkey would not develop any energy projects with Israel till the relations between the two countries were normalized.

Yildiz told reporters that Turkey did not have any intention to start a process regarding feasibility of use of water of Manavgat or natural gas transportation on Blue Stream 2.

Those two projects were currently on preparation stage, and Turkey did not consider to exert any efforts about those projects, Yildiz said.

On Monday, an Israeli raid on the convoy of ships with more than 600 people on board killed nine people and injured nearly 30 others. Eight of the dead were Turkish citizens.

The UN Security Council, which convened in an emergency session upon Turkey's call, condemned the Israeli intervention.
