Israeli lawmakers met Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a NATO Parliamentary Assembly conference in Istanbul Monday.

Following Erdogan's speech to the assembly, MKs Mickey Levy (Yesh Atid) and Omer Bar-Lev (Zionist Union) shook Erdogan's hand, thanking him for the exchange of ambassadors between Israel and Turkey, and said they would be happy for him to visit Israel.

On Saturday, the Knesset delegation met Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, who called to strengthen relations and cooperation between Israel and Turkey.

The MKs also held a meeting with Turkish parliamentarians, the first of its kind in years, including members of Erdogan's party AKP.

The group discussed possible ways for the parliaments to cooperate, including establishing an Israel-Turkey Parliamentary Friendship Group.
