Egyptian delegation to arrive in Ankara to resume talks

A senior Foreign Ministry official from Egypt is scheduled to arrive soon in Turkey's capital Ankara for the resumption of exploratory talks with the country, Egypt's Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday.

The ministry said in a statement that Ambassador Hamdi Loza, the country's deputy foreign minister, will visit Ankara on Sept. 7-8 to hold the second round of exploratory talks with Turkey.

Earlier last month, Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said there were contacts at different levels with Turkey to set the "optimal framework for relations and how to resume them."

The ministry said Loza's visit came "in response to an invitation by the Turkish Foreign Ministry."

"The second round of exploratory talks between Egypt and Turkey is expected to address bilateral relations as well as a number of regional issues," it added.

On May 5, a Turkish delegation headed by Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal visited Cairo at Egypt's invitation. At the end of the visit, the two countries issued a joint statement describing the exploratory round of bilateral talks between them as "frank and in-depth."
