Herzog publicly announces first visit Turkey
Israeli President Isaac Herzog will visit Turkey, in addition to Greece and Cyprus, and considers that he is looking forward to "everyone's contribution to a regional partnership in confronting the climate crisis," he said.
Israeli occupation president Isaac Herzog announces for the first time on Wednesday that he will visit Turkey.
Herzog claimed his visit aims to improve ties with Ankara.
The occupation president also intends to meet leaders of Greece and Cyprus to reassure them that Israeli ties with them will remain strong.
"In the coming month, I am due to visit our Mediterranean coast neighbors Greece, Cyprus, and Turkey, and meet their leaders," Herzog said at a climate conference.
Turkish media have specified March 9-10 as the dates for Herzog's visit. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has said energy cooperation will be discussed.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced last month that he would meet Herzog to move past "tense relations", between Ankara and "Tel Aviv."
In early December 2020, Al-Monitor published a report that exposed a secret channel of talks between "Israel" and Turkey with the aim of improving relations between them.
It is noteworthy that after a six-year dispute, due to the Israeli attack on the Turkish Freedom Fleet in May 2010, the two sides resumed normal relations in June 2016.
When talking about the Turkish-Israeli relations, the economic, commercial, and tourism aspects, as well as the role of each of them in strengthening those relations, cannot be overlooked, especially when it comes to major global projects related to the field of energy. In addition, cooperation in the security and military fields is a mainstay in the relations between the two parties.
