Israel has offered Turkey $20 million in compensation to the families of those killed and wounded in its botched 2010 raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, Haaretz newspaper reported on Monday.
Citing unnamed Western diplomats briefed on ongoing negotiations with Ankara, the daily said Turkey had yet to respond to the offer.
Bulent Arinc, Turkey's deputy prime minister, said major progress had been made but that a few points still had to be ironed out.
"We are not yet ready to sign... but a solution is close," Arinc told reporters.
