Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to Visit Türkiye, Erdogan Says

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu will visit Türkiye, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday.

“I told him (Netanyahu), ‘We are expecting you first, and then I will pay a visit to Israel with my delegation’, and we agreed on that,” Erdogan told reporters during his visit to New York.

“We will start energy drilling work with Israel. Not only will we begin operating energy transmission lines to Türkiye, but also from Türkiye to Europe,” he added.

On Tuesday, Erdogan met with Netanyahu at the Turkish House in New York on the sidelines of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly and discussed a range of issues including bilateral ties and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“Currently, we (Türkiye and Israel) have a total trade volume of $9.5 billion. We reached an agreement to increase this trade volume from $9.5 billion to a minimum of $15 billion in the first phase,” the Turkish president said.

Erdogan said they also discussed what they can do together in international politics.

“We talked about the benefits of establishing a mechanism in which our ministers can participate to increase cooperation in various fields between the two countries,” he added.

It is possible for the two countries to work together to establish new collaborations in areas such as energy, tourism, and technology, Erdogan said.
