Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, arrived in the Turkish city of Adana and was received by his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, according to the Foreign Ministry spokesman, Ahmed Abu Zeid, on Monday.
This is the first diplomatic visit by an Egyptian foreign minister to Turkey since the overthrow of the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood and the late President Mohamed Morsi in 2013, noting that Shoukry had visited Turkey in 2016 in light of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation summit.
The page of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry Spokesman published pictures of Davutoglu’s reception of the Egyptian Foreign Minister upon his arrival at Adana Airport.
Earlier Monday, Sameh Shoukry visited the Syrian capital, Damascus, where he met Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The Egyptian Foreign Minister conveyed a message of solidarity from the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, to Al-Assad, after he contacted him in the aftermath of the earthquake that struck northern Syria.
