Israel and Turkey Set to Announce Normalized Relations Monday

The Jerusalem Post reports: Israel and Turkey are set to announce on Monday that they have reached a rapprochement agreement that will normalize relations between the two countries more than six years after ties between the erstwhile allies fell apart following the Mavi Marmara incident.

A senior diplomatic source said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will announce the agreement, and explain its elements, at a news conference at noon in Rome. The Turks will simultaneously hold a similar event in Ankara. Netanyahu arrived in Rome on Sunday for talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Foreign Minister director- general Dore Gold and his Turkish counterpart, Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu, are then scheduled to separately sign the agreement in their respective capitals on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the agreement will come for the approval of the security cabinet and, if all goes according to plan, ambassadors are expected to be reappointed by the end of July.
