Turkey, Israel officials to discuss roadmap for closer cooperation: Report

Israel and Turkey are reportedly drafting a “roadmap” to promote their cooperation in different areas, months after the two sides reached an agreement to normalize their ties.

The undersecretaries of the Turkish and Israeli foreign ministries are scheduled to meet within a month to discuss the issue, Hurriyet Daily News cited a Turkish Foreign Ministry official as saying on Wednesday.

The two sides plan high-level visits to discuss the outcome of the upcoming “political consultations” on a series of domestic and regional issues, according to the report.

A visit by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to the Israeli-occupied territories will be on the agenda.

The two sides are also expected to upgrade a free trade agreement and the lifting of visa procedures.

The official added that Ankara and Tel Aviv will also hold talks on cooperation and information sharing on regional issues, including the crisis in Syria, where the two sides have long been supporting the Takfiri militants operating against the Damascus government.
