Energy minister Berat Albayrak is set to visit Israel by the end of this year to conclude an agreement for the building of a natural gas pipeline from the Jewish state to Turkey, the Israeli energy minister said on July 12, as reported by Hurriyet Daily and AP.

A visit by Albayrak would be a significant diplomatic move by Ankara after a rapprochement deal last year between the two countries mended a long-standing rift.    

The crisis was triggered by Israel’s deadly storming in 2010 of a Gaza-bound ship which left 10 Turkish activists dead. But the two countries normalized ties in June last year and rapidly begun discussing the gas pipeline project.

Israeli energy minister Yuval Steinitz said both countries decided to accelerate efforts to conclude by the end of this year an intergovernmental agreement that will enable the construction of a pipeline from Israel to Turkey.

“Hopefully, Mr. Albayrak will pay a visit to Israel this year in 2017, which will help us accelerate and try to conclude this agreement,” Steinitz said at the World Petroleum Congress in Istanbul after meeting Albayrak, adding that natural gas could then reach the Balkans and Europe.
