Ten Turkish ministers head to Syria

(JERUSALEM POST) — Less than a week after Turkey informed Israel that it was unwelcome in the Anatolian Eagle military exercise, 10 Turkish ministers are scheduled to travel to Syria on Tuesday to take part in a meeting of the newly formed Turkey-Syria High Level Strategic Cooperation Council.

The council was established last month in Turkey at a meeting between Turkish foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and his Syrian counterpart, Walid Moallem. At that meeting, the two countries – which were on the verge of war over a border dispute in the 1990s – agreed to do away with visa requirements for visitors to and from both countries.
