President of Northern Cyprus: Çavuşoğlu stressed the continuation of efforts to settle the Egyptian-Turkish differences
President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Ersin Tatar expressed in light of the signs of rapprochement between the two countries his hope that a settlement will soon bridge the differences between Egypt and Turkey, after the severe tension in their relations as a result of Ankara’s support for the terrorist Brotherhood and its refusal to recognize the glorious June 30 revolution that brought down the group’s rule.
In response to a question by the Alwafd’s editor in a video conference interview, Tatar said that he believes in the possibility of bridging the differences between Egypt and Turkey in light of the common history of the two countries, great social and cultural ties, and the presence of many economic and political factors that could lead to better relations.
He confirmed that he recently met with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, who indicated that there are efforts to reach a settlement between the two countries, stressing that Cairo and Ankara can cooperate in many economic fields, especially the natural resources in the eastern Mediterranean.
Tatar expressed his aspiration to hear positive news soon regarding the Egyptian-Turkish reconciliation in light of the good intentions from both sides.
