Outgoing Defense Minister Benny Gantz speaks with his Turkish counterpart Hulusi Akar and tells him he is confident that warming ties between the two countries will continue.

Gantz is heading to the opposition while Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu is putting together a new government.

“I told the Turkish defense minister that I am sure that the trend of closer security ties between the countries will continue,” Gantz says.

Gantz also again conveys Israel’s condolences for the recent terror attack in Istanbul and thanks Akar for Turkey’s condemnation of last week’s bomb attacks in Jerusalem.
