Türkiye wants to proceed with the normalization process with Egypt through high-level talks
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan asserted that Ankara wants to proceed with the normalization process with Egypt through high-level talks. The statement came a day after his first meeting with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi in Qatar.
Erdoğan and Sisi shook hands during their brief encounter in Qatar's capital Doha on the sidelines of the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony on Nov. 20 after years of strained ties between the two leaders.
