Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today (Monday) during a press conference that he intends to improve relations with Israel and Egypt, as his country has done in recent weeks with the United Arab Emirates.
"As for the steps we have taken vis-à-vis the United Arab Emirates, we have not hesitated to take similar steps vis-à-vis other countries such as Israel and Egypt," the president said in response to a reporter's question at a news conference.
Ankara and Abu Dhabi have signed billions of dollars worth of investment agreement as part of a rapprochement between the regimes, which have backed away amid Erdogan's refusal to stay away from Iran and certain rebel factions in Syria.
Erdogan's conduct has also alienated other moderate Sunni states such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Last year, the Erdogan regime launched a courtship attack on Egypt and Saudi Arabia, but these measures did not lead to a real thaw in relations between the two countries.
