Türkiye, Israel agreed in August to restore full diplomatic relations
Türkiye’s new ambassador to Tel Aviv presented his letter of credence to the Israeli president on Wednesday.
Ambassador Sakir Ozkan Torunlar was received by Isaac Herzog at a ceremony held at the Presidential Residence in West Jerusalem.
After the ceremony, in which the Turkish National Anthem was played, Torunlar presented his credentials to Herzog.
Türkiye and Israel took several steps in 2022 to improve their mutual relations.
Herzog’s visit to Ankara in March 2022 was followed by the visit of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to Israel in May. Then-prime minister of Israel, Yair Lapid, also visited Türkiye in June.
On Aug. 17, 2022, Türkiye and Israel agreed to restore full diplomatic relations and mutually appoint ambassadors.
