Istanbul Turkish Vice President Fuad Oktay affirmed his country’s endeavor to normalize relations with Egypt within the framework of the common will of the two sides, interests and mutual respect.

Oktay said in a speech before the Budget Committee of the Turkish Parliament: The recent geopolitical shifts in the Middle East were reflected in the approaches of the countries of the region as well, and that the Turkish position of giving priority to regional cooperation resulted in opening a new era in bilateral relations with the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

He added, “Our contacts with Egypt continue to normalize relations within the framework of the common will of the two sides, common interests and mutual respect, and we have undertaken and will continue to do whatever is required by the interests of our country and our people.”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described his meeting with his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, on the sidelines of the opening of the Qatar World Cup, as a first step taken to launch a new path between the two countries.

The Egyptian presidency also published a statement, confirming that the two presidents agreed that their meeting in Doha would be the beginning of the development of bilateral relations between the two countries.
