Erdogan Says Seeks Further Normalisation With Egypt After Sisi Handshake

ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that his handshake with Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Qatar on Sunday was the first step towards further normalisation in ties between the two countries, adding that other actions would follow.

In a readout of his comments made on a flight back from Qatar cited by Haberturk television channel, Erdogan said Ankara’s only demand from Egypt was a change in its attitude towards Turkey’s position in the Mediterranean Sea.
