First-time visit of Israeli minister to Turkey

It may seem like an ordinary visit and yet it is so important. The official visit of Israeli Environment minister Amir Peretz (photo) to Istanbul could have been considered a routine visit. However, it is more important as it is the first visit of a member of the Israeli government to Turkey since 2010, when relations between the two countries were at an all-time low.

The Israeli minister will participate in a conference on environmental protection of the Mediterranean; however, it is certain he will hold talks with Turkish officials also.
