Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that an upcoming visit to Ankara by President Isaac Herzog will be beneficial for the two nations.

Erdogan tells reporters that he welcomes Herzog’s visit, saying “God willing it will be good for Turkey-Israel relations for such a step to be taken after such a long period.”

Herzog’s office confirmed yesterday that the president is planning to visit Turkey next month as relations between the two countries thaw.

A delegation of Turkish officials is on its way to Israel today to begin advanced planning for the trip, and is said to include İbrahim Kalin, Erdogan’s chief adviser, as well as a deputy foreign minister.
