Turkey recognized the State of Israel in 1949. Turkey’s first
diplomatic mission in Israel was a ”Legation” and was officially inaugurated on 7 January 1950 and the first Turkish Chief of Mission, Seyfullah Esin presented his credentials to Chaim Weisman, President of Israel. However, the Turkish Legation was downgraded to the level of “Charge d’Affaires” after the Suez Canal Crisis on 26 November 1956.
Israel signed a free trade agreement with Turkey in 2000. It was a historic accord, Israel’s first such agreement with a Muslim country. Since then, there has been a remarkably steady progression in trade and investment. The Two-way trade, having surpassed the $4-billion mark in 2011, far exceeds the level of Israel’s commercial relations
with Canada. By 2013, he noted, the figure is expected to reach $5 billion.
