Hello Hannah,

I completely agree that there are positive signs about the future of diplomacy and understanding in the Near East. Countries such as Turkey who are seeking to soften political channels with historical enemies like Israel in order to pave a way forward are good things, even if the catalysts are other national motives. Peace is peace. Hopefully, other nations continue to seek non-combative means of building and strengthening relationships with other states to bring more hope to the people that have been long-suffering in the region.
