Turkey requests Israel to low securityNabi Avcı, the culture and tourism minister of Turkey has requested Israel ministry to demote the security warning that the country had issued for Turkey. Avci met Yariv Levin, the Israeli counterpart on 7 th February. Since 2010, Avci is the first Turkish cabinet member to visit Israel since 2010.

To Avci, ‘’ We discussed that Israel should ease its security warning for Turkey. Lowering it will be a key trigger in increasing the number of Israeli tourists visiting Turkey. We can do the same as what we did with Russia. For that, we prepared the latest security reports, which showed that we have taken required security measures,”.

He also said that Turkey wants to attract 1 million tourists from Israel this year which wont be an easy task either. To quote Nabi Avci, ‘’ We told Israeli officials, frankly, that because of visa issues and some fficulties faced in Israeli airports and customs, Turks do not place Israel in their travel plans. We voiced the need for visa-free travel.’’ He also said that Israel has expressed discomfort in providing lower number of cruise tours in various eastern Mediterranean places.
