‘Foreign Ministry’s Dore Gold meets Turkish counterpart in Rome’

Foreign Ministry Director General Dore Gold met in Rome with his Turkish counterpart, Feridun Hadi Sinirlioğlu, Channel 2 reports.

The two discussed ways to get Israeli-Turkish relations back on track after a rift that was heightened over a statement by Turkish President and former prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan against the Jewish state and the government.
