Istanbul: Israeli President Isaac Herzog will pay an official visit to Turkey in February, Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Wednesday, hailing it as a chance for a reset in relations with the Jewish state.

“This visit could open a new chapter in relations between Turkey and Israel,” Erogan said in an interview with Turkey’s NTV channel, adding that he was “ready to take steps in Israel’s direction in all areas”.
