In a sign that his government has changed its attitude toward Israel, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is quoted in local media on Saturday as saying that Ankara and Jerusalem “need each other.”

"Israel is in need of a country like Turkey in the region,” the Turkish leader told Hurriyet Daily News. “We have to admit that we also need Israel."

Erdogan was speaking on board a plane transporting him back home following a meeting with Saudi King Salman in Riyadh.
