(ANSA) - ISTANBUL, MARCH 20 - "We agree that we are not rivals in Libya and that we should work together for Libya's stability".
This was announced by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, as reported by Anadolu, citing a meeting held in Cairo with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry.
"On this point we will intensify our consultations", added Cavusoglu after the meeting which is part of the process of resumption of relations between the two countries, about 11 years after the rupture of relations following the arrival of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to power in Egypt after the ousting of former president Mohammed Morsi.
The different position on the war in Libya was one of the reasons that had led the two countries to break off relations.
In recent years, Turkey has expressed its intention to resume relations with Egypt and a process for the resumption of relations has recently been launched.
