The Turkish presidency confirmed that benefits will result from the improvement of its relations with Cairo for the situation in Libya and the whole region.

Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said, during an interview with a local channel on Sunday evening, that his country believes that improving relations with Egypt will have “many benefits, not only for both countries but also for Libya, Palestine and the whole region.”

Kalin considered the visit of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu last week to Egypt as important within the framework of normalizing relations between the two sides. He pointed out that the Turkish minister discussed bilateral relations, regional issues and the current situation in the eastern Mediterranean with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry.

The Egyptian Foreign Minister considered the visit "an inauguration of the path of restoring normal relations between the two countries."

Cavusoglu confirmed last week - according to Turkey's Anadolu Agency - "we agree that we are not rivals in Libya and that we should work together for the stability of Libya. We will intensify our consultations on this issue".
