Turkish, Egyptian foreign ministers meet in Cairo

Bilateral relations on table in Egypt

Türkiye’s foreign minister met with his Egyptian counterpart on Saturday for talks in Cairo.

Mevlut Cavusoglu is paying a one-day official visit to Egypt upon the invitation of Sameh Shoukry.

They will discuss bilateral relations

“In the meetings, all aspects of our bilateral relations will be discussed and views on regional and international issues will be exchanged,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.

The ministers are expected to hold a news conference after the meeting.

Egyptian FM visited quake-hit cities

After the powerful Feb. 6 earthquakes in southern Türkiye, Shoukry visited the quake-hit Adana and Mersin provinces. His visit to Türkiye was the first by an Egyptian foreign minister in more than a decade.

Diplomatic relations between Türkiye and Egypt have been maintained at the level of charges d’affaires on both sides since Egypt’s 2013 military coup which overthrew the late President Mohammed Morsi.
