Breakthrough In Israel-Turkey Reconciliation Talks


A breakthrough was reported in negotiations between Israel and Turkey to repair a three-year diplomatic rift, with officials in Yerushalayim telling Israeli media on Monday that they had reached a draft agreement.

“The two sides expect to come to an agreement in the near future,” the PM’s Office said following an eight-hour-long bilateral meeting at the Foreign Ministry.

National Security Advisor Yaakov Amidror and Joseph Ciechanover from the Prime Minister’s Office led the Israeli delegation.

“The meeting was conducted in a good and positive manner. The delegations reached an agreed draft, but further clarifications are required on certain subjects,” the Prime Minister’s Office said.

Turkish Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu headed Turkey’s delegation.
