Turkish foreign minister set to pay official visit to Egypt


Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is scheduled to visit Egypt on Saturday upon an invitation by his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry, Turkish authorities said on Friday.

According to a statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Cavusoglu and Shoukry will discuss all aspects of bilateral relations during the landmark ministerial-level visit, which will come after more than a decade.

The foreign minister will also exchange views on regional and international matters, the statement added.

Egypt and Trkiye held exploratory talks in May and September 2021 to discuss restoring bilateral relations.

Shoukry's visit to Trkiye in February was the first by an Egyptian foreign minister to Ankara in more than a decade.
