Turkey Reported Willing to Become Mediator Between Israel and the Arab States

Turkey made a bid today for the role of mediator between Israel and the Arab states. The Ankara radio, in a broadcast monitored here, said that through her relations with Israel and the Arab states and her politically strategic location, Turkey could act as mediator between the two sides.

The broadcast added that while Turkey was culturally, religiously and geographically bound closely to the Arab world, the country watched with great interest the achievements and progress of Israel.
