The two countries decided to resume full diplomatic relations after positive developments in the past year.

Israeli and Turkish authorities have decided to resume diplomatic relations in full. This was stated in a press release published on Wednesday, August 17, by the Office of the Prime Minister of Israel, Yair Lapid.

“Following the agreements reached during Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s visit to Ankara with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and Prime Minister Lapid’s talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as positive developments in relations of Israeli-Turkish relations over the past year, the two countries have decided to resume full diplomatic relations,” the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office said.

It can be noted that the parties decided to re-raise the level of relations between the two countries to full diplomatic relations and return the ambassadors and consul generals of the two countries.

“The restoration of relations with Turkey is an important value for the stability of the region and very important economic news for the people of Israel,” Lapid said, adding that Israel will continue to strengthen its position in the world.

A serious cooling of relations between Israel and Turkey occurred in 2010, when the “freedom flotilla” tried to break the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip and was stopped by Israeli special forces. Then nine Turkish activists were killed, another 40 people were injured.

In 2016, the countries agreed to normalize relations and announced the appointment of ambassadors.

Another escalation occurred in 2018 after the announcement of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

By the way, in 2020, Erdogan said that Jerusalem is a Turkish city, because it was under the control of the Ottoman Empire for centuries.
