The Turkish Foreign Minister, Hakan Fidan, said on Monday that the normalization of relations between his country and Egypt would bring about positive results to Libya – a neighboring country to Egypt and a strategic ally to Türkiye.
The Turkish Foreign Minister told local Turkish media that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was set to travel to Egypt on February 14 to meet with his counterpart Abdel Fattah El Sisi, in his first visit since Ankara and Cairo upgraded relations by appointing ambassadors last year.
“Normalization in our relations is important for Egypt to have certain technologies. We have an agreement to provide (Egypt) unmanned air vehicles and other technologies,” Fidan said, adding that international demand for Turkish drones soared after their impact on conflicts in Syria, Libya, Azerbaijan and Ukraine.
Fidan said it was critically important to achieve serious cooperation between Ankara and Cairo regarding the security of the Mediterranean, reiterating that the normalization of relations between the two countries would benefit the region, especially the policies in Libya.
