Turkey and Israel reach draft agreement to mend three-year diplomatic crisis

May 7, 2013 - 01:24 -

WAM Gaza, 7th May, 2013 (WAM) -- Israeli and Turkish officials have reached a draft agreement to mend the three-year diplomatic crisis between the two countries, after a productive day-long meeting at the Israeli Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem on Monday night.

"The two sides expect to come to an agreement in the near future," said a statement released by the Israeli Prime Minister's Office. "The meeting was conducted in a good and positive manner. The delegations reached an agreed draft, but further clarifications are required on certain subjects," the statement said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Israeli National Security Council head Yaakov Amidror along with Joseph Ciechanover from the Prime Minister's Office led the Israeli delegation. The Foreign Ministry staff was not present, even though the meeting was held in their building, according to a diplomatic source. Turkish Foreign Ministry undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu, a former Turkish ambassador to Israel, led his country's delegation. It was the highest-level Turkish delegation to visit Israel in the last three years.
