    US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Turkey and Israel to fully normalise ties, after Israel's US-brokered apology for a deadly 2010 raid on a Gaza aid flotilla organised by a Turkish charity.
    Kerry made his comments in a joint news conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Istanbul on Sunday.
    "We would like to see this relationship that is important to stability in Middle East, critical to the peace process itself, we would like to see it back on track in its full," Kerry said in a joint news conference with Davutoglu.
