On Saturday, Turkey’s foreign minister will make his first visit to Egypt in over a decade


Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will travel to Egypt tomorrow Saturday, at the invitation of his counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, in a visit that is the first of its kind in more than a decade.

Today, Friday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said Cavusoglu will meet his counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, during the official visit. The two ministers are expected to discuss Turkish-Egyptian relations in all aspects and exchange views on issues regional and international.

Cavusoglu’s visit is the first by a Turkish foreign minister to Egypt in 11 years.

For its part, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry confirmed that the Turkish Foreign Minister will travel to Cairo tomorrow Saturday for talks with Shoukry.

On February 27, Shoukry paid a condolence and solidarity visit to Turkey after the earthquake and met with Mevlut Cavusoglu.

It should be noted that in March 2021, Turkey announced the resumption of diplomatic contacts with Egypt. He also ordered opposition media operating in his territory to soften their tone towards Cairo.

On May 5-6, 2021, a Turkish delegation, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Sadat Onal, visited Cairo in the first visit of its kind since 2013, and held “exploratory” talks with Egyptian officials, led by the Deputy Foreign Minister. Hamdi Sanad Loza, to discuss the rapprochement and normalization of relations between the two countries.

Last November, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met on the sidelines of the opening of the World Cup in the Qatari capital, Doha.

The “Extra News” channel, affiliated with the United Media Services company, owned by the Egyptian general intelligence service, declared that “an Egyptian-Turkish summit was held between Presidents Sisi and Erdogan, on the sidelines of the opening of the World Cup”. “
