Israeli president to visit Turkiye in March: Turkish president

Israel's President Isaac Herzog will pay an official visit to Turkiye in March, President Erdogan said on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters ahead of a trip to Ukraine, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Herzog's expected visit to Turkiye would happen "in mid-March."

Russian President Vladimir Putin will also come to Turkiye for an official visit after visiting China, Erdogan added.

Putin's visit to China is scheduled for Friday.

Commenting on the recent rise in tensions between Moscow and Kyiv, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkiye is "closely following" developments. "On every platform, we voice Turkiye's support for Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty," added the Turkish leader.

Erdogan urged all parties to exercise self-restraint and engage in dialogue to ensure peace in the region.

Erdogan also said Israeli President Isaac Herzog's visit to Turkiye will happen in mid-March.

Commenting on 12 irregular migrants who were found frozen to death on Wednesday after being pushed back by Greek forces into Turkiye, Erdogan said it would be unacceptable to remain indifferent to such an incident.
