CAIRO: Egypt’s foreign minister said Sunday that relations with Turkey could only return to normal if “real actions” were taken by Ankara to align with Cairo’s principles.
Reports last week said Turkey was in contact with Egyptian officials after years of tensions.
Sameh Shoukry told parliament’s foreign relations committee: “(There is) no communication outside the normal diplomatic framework. If real actions from Turkey show alignment with Egyptian principles and goals then the groundwork will be laid for relations to return to normal.”
