A planned visit by Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid to Türkiye will take place this week as scheduled, Israel confirmed on Tuesday.
The visit will take place this Thursday, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lior Khayyat stated.
According to a national newspaper, Lapid will be accompanied by the foreign ministry’s director-general, Alon Ushpiz, during the visit.
The Israeli foreign minister’s visit comes as the Knesset is expected to be dissolved next week amid a deep political crisis in the country.
In a move that will bring Lapid as prime minister under a coalition agreement between them last year, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Lapid agreed on Monday to table a bill next week for the dissolution of Israel’s parliament.
