The Turkish foreign minister declared on Thursday that Israel and Turkey have started working to elevate their diplomatic representation to that of ambassadors in the relevant nations.
At a press conference with his Israeli counterpart, Yair Lapid, Mevlut Cavusoglu emphasized the value of bilateral political and regional talks and stated that the two nations will continue to exchange travelers and engage in political negotiations at all levels.
The continuation of the cordial communication between our nations is once more agreed upon, Cavusoglu stated.
Cavusoglu emphasized that Ankara and Tel Aviv work together to combat terrorism and any threats against Israeli nationals, adding that Ankara will never tolerate terrorist assaults on its soil.
According to Cavusoglu, the Turkish and Israeli ministers also discussed “measures to be taken” in their bilateral business cooperation. The two nations will host the Joint Economic Commission conference in September.
He also highlighted Ankara’s determination to keep up communication and collaboration in the energy sector.
According to Cavusoglu, the Israeli side was informed of Turkey’s “expectations and sensitives” on the Palestine issue during the meetings.
He emphasized the necessity of a two-state solution and recommended against taking any actions that would sabotage the negotiations for peace between Israel and Palestine.
Israel praises the Turkish government’s “professional, coordinated activity,” according to Lapid, who praised Turkish intelligence for “fiddling an Iranian plot in Istanbul.”
