The president’s office said in a statement that “a delegation of senior Turkish officials will arrive in Israel this week, in preparation for Herzog’s upcoming visit,” without specifying a date.
According to the statement, the visit aims to “hold discussions on relations between the two countries.”
According to Turkish media, the visit is expected to take place on March 9 and 10.
Last month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced an upcoming visit to his Israeli counterpart, in early February.
The rapprochement between the two countries began weeks ago, through phone contacts that took place in particular between Erdogan and Israeli officials.
The Turkish president said earlier that he is ready to cooperate with Israel on a gas pipeline project in the eastern Mediterranean.
The Turkish delegation includes the State Spokesman and Senior Adviser to the Turkish President Ibrahim Kalin, and Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Unal.
Turkish officials will meet with senior officials in the Israeli Foreign Ministry and Herzog’s office, the statement confirmed.
An Israeli delegation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs visited Turkey last December, when talks began on the visit of the President of Israel, according to the statement.
