Before boarding his flight to Turkish soil, Herzog said he expected a deep dialogue between the parties and informed that the meeting was coordinated with the Prime Minister and the Chancellor, Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, respectively.

Relations between the two countries were broken after the death of 10 Turkish activists who were trying to circumvent the blockade imposed by Israel against the Gaza Strip.

In 2016, the two sides agreed to restore their relations, but such a goal failed and they even expelled their ambassadors in 2018 because of the crackdown by Israeli security forces against thousands of Palestinian protesters.

However, during the last few months there have been telephone conversations between Lapid and his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, Minister of Foreign Affairs .
