Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that talks with Turkey regarding the possibility of restoring relations to the level of ambassadors will take place at the appropriate time, during the first visit of his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, to Cairo in 10 years.
Cavusoglu said during a press conference with Shoukry that Turkey will raise the level of its relations with Egypt to the level of ambassadors as soon as possible.
He added, “I am very happy that we have taken concrete steps to normalize relations with Egypt. We will do our best so that relations between us will not be severed again in the future.”
Shoukry visited Turkey last month to show solidarity with it after the devastating earthquakes that claimed more than 50,000 lives in Turkey and Syria.
