In Riyadh for a UN postal conference, Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi meets with Ömer Abdullah Karagözoğlu, the chairman of Turkey’s Information and Communication Technologies Authority.

According to Karhi’s office, the two agree to strengthen bilateral cooperation in telecommunications and mail, especially in 5G infrastructure and e-commerce.

Karhi is leading an Israeli delegation to the Universal Postal Union’s 2023 Extraordinary Congress, accompanied by Knesset Economy Committee chairman David Bitan. He made the trip less than a week after his Likud colleague Haim Katz became the first Israeli minister to officially visit Saudi Arabia as the two nations move closer to establishing ties.
