Foreign Minister Yair Lapid’s plane lands in Ankara ahead of a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Lapid, who is set to assume the premiership next week, is two hours behind schedule because of “technical problems” on his plane.

The joint statements by the two senior diplomats are now set for 4:20 p.m. local time.
