Foreign Minister Yair Lapid’s team is preparing for the possibility of a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during his visit to the country tomorrow.

A source close to the matter says that because Lapid will soon take over the role of prime minister — as early as next week — his team believes Erdogan may ask for a surprise meeting.

Despite the unfolding drama around the dissolution of the governing coalition, Lapid will still fly to Ankara to meet his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu, according to the Foreign Ministry. They are expected to discuss the Iranian terror threat to Israeli travelers in the country.
