Egypt Invites Turkish Rep. for Talks

Egypt invited the senior Turkish representative to the Cairo embassy for a second round of harsh talks, after Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan told CNN that he stands behind the claim that “Egyptian President el-Sisi is a dictator.”

Last year, Egypt expelled the Turkish Ambassador from Cairo, claiming that “He subverted Egyptian democracy.”Turkey responded with similar action and relations between the two countries have been strained ever since.
