ANTALYA, Turkiye – An Israeli politician has said that President Issac Herzog’s visit to Turkiye was “historic” and that the “solid partnership” benefits all in the Middle East on all issues, including the economy, diplomacy and other areas.
“I think that we are all very, very optimistic about the positive change that is happening in these weeks about the visit, which is an historic visit,” said Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi, who is the Deputy Speaker in the Israeli parliament and a Meretz Party deputy.
She said Israelis were “really excited” to see that there will be cooperation in areas such as tourism, economic development, trade and energy.
Both countries are moving forward into a new era, she said.
Zoabi said there will be more steps in the future and she hopes to see Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu visit Israel.
She said that Turkish-Israeli cooperation would send a peaceful message to the Middle East in general.
