Recently there has been a process of normalization of relations between Cairo and Ankara.
At the end of February, the head of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry Sameh Shukri visited the earthquake zone in Turkey, and the president expressed condolences to Recep Tayyip Erdogan in connection with the disaster.
After that, the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlut Cavusoglu arrived in Cairo on the first visit of a Turkish dignitary to Egypt after a ten-year break. In April, Shukri again made a trip to Turkey.
