MK: Relations with Turkey is important, holding strategic value

In an interview with Reshet Bet, Minister Tamar Zandberg referred to the release of Mordy and Natalie Oknin from their detention in Turkey.
“I am sure the behavior of the prime ministers and the president was related to their desire for the success of the release. Relations with Turkey are very important, this is an important country in the region. Recognition of Armenian genocide is a historic event unrelated to politics,” Zandberg said.
Zandberg also referred to the Education Minister’s decision that the Israel Prize will not be awarded to Prof. Oded Goldreich. “A wrong and unfortunate decision that has politics written all over it. Political opinions have inflluenced professional considerations.”
