However, Cameron also urged Turkey not to allow the incident to wreck its relationship with Israel. On the flotilla raid, the UK prime minister—who heads a coalition government with the center-left Liberal Democrats—declared: “I have told Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu we will expect the Israeli inquiry to be swift, transparent and rigorous.'”

Cameron expressed hope that direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians would take place within the coming weeks and urged Turkey to press the parties to come together by ”making the case for peace.” He said: ”Turkey's relationships in the region, both with Israel and with the Arab world, are of incalculable value. No other country has the same potential to build understanding between Israel and the Arab world. I know that Gaza has led to real strains in Turkey's relationship with Israel. But Turkey is a friend of Israel.” The British leader also expressed strong support for Turkey's membership in the European Union, which remains controversial.
