Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, says that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will make a visit to Turkiye in the next two months, the Times of Israel reports.

According to the report, Netanyahu was due to travel to Turkiye in July, but postponed the trip as he had a pacemaker implanted.

“I think Netanyahu’s visit to Turkiye, which was postponed due to illness, will take place around October-November, and contacts are still ongoing in order to hold it at the most appropriate time,” Erdogan says.

Marc Schneier, a respected American rabbi and representative of the US Jewish community, provided unique insights into the atmosphere that pervaded the room during the Erdogan-Netanyahu encounter, Daily Sabah reports.

His words were laden with optimism, and he described the meeting as “positive and heartfelt”, an affirmation that went beyond mere diplomatic pleasantries, Scheier says.

According to Schneier, “One of the most compelling indicators of this positive shift is Netanyahu’s planned visit to Ankara.”
