The Türkiye-Israel ties will gain new momentum after the appointment of ambassadors, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told his Israeli counterpart Isaac Herzog in a phone call Friday.
The Turkish and Israeli presidents discussed bilateral relations and regional issues over the phone and Erdoğan expressed that Ankara is in favor of developing cooperation and dialogue on the basis of respect for mutual sensitivities.
Mutually appointing ambassadors is "an important step" toward the positive development of Türkiye-Israel relations, Erdoğan underlined.
Earlier this week, Türkiye and Israel decided to fully restore diplomatic ties, and reappoint ambassadors after over four years.
Herzog's visit to Türkiye in March, followed by reciprocal visits by both countries' foreign ministers, contributed to easing relations after more than a decade of tensions.
