President Isaac Herzog hails the announcement that Jerusalem and Ankara will restore full diplomatic relations.

“I commend the renewal of full diplomatic relations with Turkey — an important development that we’ve been leading for the past year, which will encourage greater economic relations, mutual tourism, and friendship between the Israeli and Turkish peoples,” says Herzog, whose visit to Turkey earlier in the year played a key role in paving the way for the move.

“Good neighborly relations and the spirit of partnership in the Middle East are important for us all. Members of all faiths — Muslims, Jews, and Christians — can and must live together in peace,” Herzog says.
