Turkey and Israel will complete the process of exchanging ambassadors within one week to 10 days, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Thursday, a key step in a process of normalizing ties ruptured six years ago.

His comments in a news conference came after the two countries agreed on Thursday to deepen cooperation in the energy sector.
