President Isaac Herzog is scheduled to begin a two-day visit to Turkey on Wednesday for talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara and to meet members of the Jewish community in Istanbul, the President’s Residence confirmed on Saturday. Herzog will be the first Israeli leader to visit Turkey since 2008 and the first president since 2003. The president and his wife Michal will be welcomed to the Presidential Complex in an official ceremony in the capital Ankara, and then Istanbul, to meet members of the Jewish community.

The presidents are expected to discuss Israel-Turkey relations and the potential for expanding collaboration between their respective countries. The rapprochement between Israel and Turkey in recent months, following years of frosty relations, began with Erdogan calling Herzog to congratulate him on his election victory. They have spoken several times since.
