Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al Sisi on Sunday, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in New Delhi.

Last March, Türkiye announced the resumption of its first diplomatic contacts with Cairo since 2013.

Relations between Ankara and Cairo were severed after Sisi came to power that year.

Sisi’s overthrow of Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, who belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood and is a major ally of Türkiye, prompted President Erdogan to repeat that he would never talk to someone like Sisi.

In the wake of the February 6 earthquake that killed more than 50,000 people in Türkiye, the two presidents spoke by phone after exchanging their first handshake in November 2022 in the stands of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
