Proud to have attended the reception and breakfast meeting in honor of H.E. Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Türkiye, at the Turkish House in New York. The Foreign Minister shared his and his country’s views with the #Jewish community leading members. He offered his vision of how #Turkey, #Israel, and the #UnitedStates could cooperate to address pressing issues.
