Turkish foreign minister in Ramallah ahead of Israel swing

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says he is holding talks in Ramallah ahead of a visit to Israel meant to herald the thawing of frozen ties between Jerusalem and Ankara.

Cavusoglu tweets a picture of him meeting Palestinian officials at a military crossing near Ramallah, after he flew into Israel early Tuesday.

“In #Palestine to hold Türkiye-Palestine II. Joint Committee  Meeting & bilaterals,” he writes.

Cavusoglu is expected in Israel on Wednesday for a meeting with Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, as well as visits to Yad Vashem and the Old City of Jerusalem, the latter of which he will do in a private capacity.
