Al-Sisi: Egypt is opening a new page in relations with Türkiye

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan went Egypt to meet his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The two leaders had a joint news conference after their meeting.

In the conference, Erdogan stated that “human tragedy in the occupied Palestinian territories, especially in Gaza” were at the top of the agenda during his meeting with Sisi.

Erdogan urged the Islamic world and the global community, including the UN Security Council, to stop “such madness to lead to genocide.”

“It is our priority to establish a cease-fire as soon as possible to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza without any obstacles,” he said.

He said Türkiye will continue to cooperate and stand in solidarity with its Egyptian brothers to stop the bloodshed in the blockaded Palestinian enclave.

Sisi hailed cooperation between Egypt and Türkiye for quick access to the largest amount of humanitarian aid to the Palestinians in the enclave.

Also, leaders both expressed their willing to open a new page in relations of the two countries.

Sisi said Egypt seeks to boost its trade with Türkiye to $15 billion in the next five years.

“Egypt is making significant investments in the defense sector. I believe that we will join forces with Egypt, develop joint projects,” Erdogan said.

Erdogan said they also discussed issues in Libya, Sudan and Somalia, adding that “we fully support the unity, territorial integrity and peace of these three brotherly countries.”

“We are determined to increase our contacts with Egypt at all levels for peace and stability in our region,” he said.
