Turkish and Egyptian Foreign Ministers Meet as Countries Relaunch Diplomatic Relations

HeadlineMar 20, 2023

The foreign ministers of Turkey and Egypt met in Cairo for their first official talks in a decade as the two countries move to restore ties. The pair agreed to reestablish ambassadorships “as soon as possible.” Turkey and Egypt severed ties in 2013 after President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who was then army chief, led the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, a Turkish ally. Tensions have also simmered over the conflict in Libya and over maritime borders in the eastern Mediterranean.
