Egypt halts talks with Turkey over MoUs with Libya

The Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said dialogue meetings with Turkey stopped after two sessions because Ankara’s practices in Libya didn’t change.

Shoukry told Al-Arabiya TV Channel that Libyan parties should respect Skhirat agreement, signed in December 2015, and called on the UN and stakeholders to deal with the legitimate government in Libya, referring to Fathi Bashagha’s government.

Two rounds of talks were held between Cairo and Ankara at the level of deputy foreign ministers in Egypt and Turkey to discuss the necessary steps to normalize relations at the bilateral level and in the regional context.

However, those meetings have not yet resulted in the exchange of diplomatic representation between the two sides. They both are still at the charge d’affaires’ level.
