Egyptian FM to visit Turkey for the first time, to discuss bilateral relations

Egypt’s newly appointed Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr is going to make his first visit abroad to Turkey to discuss developments in the region and bilateral relations. The foreign minister is scheduled to have talks with Turkish officials in Ankara on Wednesday and Thursday, with an accompanying senior delegation.

Meanwhile, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ahmed Fathallah acknowledged that the talks the foreign minister is planned to have with Turkish officials “will prove to be very beneficial,” given Turkey’s growing role in the region. Amr is expected to visit Turkish officials and evaluate developments in the Middle East and North Africa, where mass anti-regime demonstrations have rocked the region since January.
