Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu paid an official visit to Cairo today, Saturday, at the invitation of his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, in the first visit by a Turkish foreign minister to Cairo in 11 years.
Cavusoglu confirmed, in a joint press conference with his Egyptian counterpart, that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, during their meeting in Doha on the sidelines of their attendance at the opening ceremony of the World Cup, pledged to work on developing relations.
He stated that the two presidents assigned the foreign ministers of the two countries to work to re-normalize joint relations, stressing that there are tangible positions in this regard.
He expressed his pride in the development of relations, considering that Egypt is an important country, whether in the Arab geography or the geography of the countries of the Mediterranean basin.
He made it clear that his country will never forget these honorable positions of Egypt towards the disaster that befell Turkey, revealing that President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi contacted his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the aftermath of the disaster.
The Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry had visited Turkey weeks ago, in the wake of the country’s exposure to a devastating earthquake, the effects of which were disastrous.
The two ministers held a session of bilateral talks, after which they chaired a session of talks between the Egyptian and Turkish delegations. Various aspects of bilateral relations and international and regional issues of common concern were discussed.
