US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan
The US on Saturday welcomed the Turkish foreign minister’s visit to Egypt – the first such visit in over a decade.
Mevlut Cavusoglu is the first Turkish foreign minister to visit Egypt after 11 years upon the invitation of his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry.
"We welcome today’s visit to Cairo by Turkey’s FM @mevlutcavusoglu for meetings @MFAEgypt with FM Shoukrey, the first such visit in over a decade. An important step towards a more stable and prosperous region," National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said on Twitter.
Diplomatic relations between Türkiye and Egypt are maintained at the level of charges d'affaires on both sides since Egypt's 2013 military coup which overthrew the late President Mohammed Morsi.
