Israel just announced that they have appointed a new ambassador to Turkey, which many hope will help the two countries continue on a path to reconciliation.

The Algemeiner reports:

Eitan Na’eh, who currently serves as deputy ambassador in London and formerly served as the ambassador to Azerbaijan, has been selected for the post, the Foreign Ministry said. Na’eh joined the Foreign Ministry in 1991, where he specialized in Turkish affairs and was previously posted in Ankara in 1993.

Last month, Turkish media reported that Kemal Okem, a close adviser to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, had been selected as envoy to Israel.

Erdogan had expelled the previous Israeli ambassador in 2010, after the fallout from the Israeli commando raid on the Mavi Marmara flotilla. Both countries agreed to restore relations last summer.
