NBA star and human rights activist Enes Kanter met with Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan on Tuesday.
Kanter tweeted that he had "an amazing conversation with [his] good friend @giladerdan1."
"Working together to create a better, brighter, more peaceful future," added Kanter. "It’s all about respect, understand and building bridges together. יותר טוב ביחד"
Last year, the Boston Celtics player started the "You Are My Hope" campaign and petition to raise awareness about Turkish human rights violations.
The Turkish government has issued an arrest warrant for Kanter and his passport has been revoked for his political views, with Turkey alleging that Kanter is connected to Fethullah Gulen, a cleric blamed for organizing a July 2016 coup attempt.
