Israel and Turkey restore full diplomatic relations

Baku, June 28 AZERTAC

Israel and Turkey have reached an agreement to fully restore diplomatic relations, The Irish Times reports.

Mr Netanyahu said the agreement was of “strategic importance” and would promote stability in a turbulent Middle East. “Israel and Turkey are two major regional powers,” he said.

Mr Yildirim said the two countries would appoint ambassadors as soon as possible after the agreement is signed on Tuesday.

The reconciliation deal is also expected to boost prospects for Israeli sales of natural gas to Turkey and for the laying of pipelines via Turkey to European markets.
