Turkey and Israel have held their first political consultations in seven years after the two sides reached an agreement to normalize their ties in June 2016.

Turkish Foreign Undersecretary Umit Yalcin and his Israeli counterpart, Yuval Rotem, held a meeting in Ankara on Wednesday to discuss bilateral ties and regional developments.

Israeli media reported last month that Ankara and Tel Aviv were drafting a “roadmap” to promote their cooperation in different areas.

According to the reports, the two sides were expected to upgrade a free trade agreement and the lifting of visa procedures.

Among other issues expected to be on the agenda of the talks is the crisis in Syria, where the two sides have long been supporting the Takfiri militants operating against the Damascus government.

Last June, Ankara and Tel Aviv struck an agreement on the restoration of bilateral diplomatic ties, which had been severed over an Israeli commando raid that killed 10 Gaza Strip-bound Turkish humanitarian aid workers in 2010.
