On June 27th, Israel and Turkey officially announced that they have reached a rapprochement deal, ending the diplomatic crisis between them.
 
 
A couple of days earlier, just as Israeli-Turkey negotiations were reaching their conclusion, Mitvim Institute and GPoT Center experts met in Istanbul for their 7th policy dialogue, in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.
 
 
The dialogue was participated by Member of Knesset Ksenia Svetlova (Zionist Union) and Dr. Mesut Özcan from the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who made a unique joint public appearance.
 
 
Discussions focused on producing recommendations for a successful reconciliation process, and on mapping possible implications of the Israel-Turkey deal on regional dynamics, the Gaza Strip, and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. 
 
 
Following the meeting in Istanbul, the Mitvim Institute and GPoT Center have published a joint policy brief, "Policy Recommendations for Israel-Turkey Reconciliation," which delineates a number of steps that both countries should take in order to ensure a successful reconciliation process.
 
 
The Mitvim Institute and GPoT Center have been working since 2012 to advance Israel-Turkey relations. Read here our joint activity summary.
