Türkiye wants to continue the normalization process with Egypt through high-level talks, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said a day after his first meeting with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi in Qatar earlier of this month.

Erdogan and Sisi shook hands during their brief meeting in the Qatari capital Doha on the sidelines of the World Cup opening ceremony on November 20, after years of strained ties between the two leaders.

Türkiye’s relations with Egypt soured after former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was ousted in July 2013 and his Turkey-backed Muslim Brotherhood group was outlawed, prompting the two countries to expel each other’s ambassadors. .

With opposing positions on the conflict in Libya and the maritime borders in the Eastern Mediterranean region, Ankara and Cairo held their first diplomatic talks in eight years in 2021.

Türkiye has tried to repair its frayed ties with regional powers including Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in recent years. ■
