Report: Israeli, Turkish senior diplomats meet in Rome

The Foreign Ministry would not comment Monday evening to reports that Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold held a secret meeting in Rome earlier in the day with senior Turkish diplomat Feridun Sinirlioglu.

“We are not relating to the meetings of the Foreign Ministry director-general,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Emanuel Nachshon said.

The meeting comes just weeks after Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan’s AKP Party failed to win a majority in Turkish parliamentary elections, delivering him a stinging rebuke and scuttling his plans to expand his presidential powers.
