Lapid's office said he will also meet with the Greek prime minister while in New York…

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will meet during the UN General Assembly in New York, Reuters reported, citing Lapid's press office.

Lapid's office said he will also meet with the Greek prime minister while in New York.

The meeting marks another milestone for the countries as they work to rebuild long-broken ties, the media noted.

Both governments expelled ambassadors in 2018 and have frequently exchanged barbs over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Last month, Turkey and Israel announced they would reappoint ambassadors.

In March, Israel's president, whose post is largely ceremonial, visited Turkey at Erdogan's invitation, the highest-ranking Israeli visit since 2008. Two months later, Turkey's foreign minister visited Israel, and the regional powers said they hoped to expand economic ties.
