"Turkish FM Gul to visit Israel next week
By The Associated Press
ANKARA - Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul will travel to Israel next week, the Foreign Ministry said yesterday, in what appeared to be an effort to mend ties after the Turkish premier accused Israel of engaging in state terrorism against Palestinians.
A ministry statement said Gul would discuss bilateral ties and Middle East peace as well as other regional issues.
Gul will meet with President Moshe Katsav, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom on January 4 and with members of the Palestinian leadership on January 5, the Anatolia news agency said."
