Release of UN report on 'Mavi Marmara' deferred

Officials say Palmer report delayed to give Jerusalem, Ankara time to formulate agreement in order to renew diplomatic ties.

The planned release Wednesday of the UN’s Palmer Commission report on the Mavi Marmara has been postponed for about a month to allow Israel and Turkey to find a formula to renew full diplomatic ties and obviate the need to release the report, diplomatic sources in Jerusalem said Sunday night.
According to the officials, the report – which was to be submitted to UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday – will now not be submitted until the end of August. The report was originally to be released on May 15, but was postponed at Turkey’s request. And then again on July 7, another day that came and went without its release….
