Turkey could give us 15 Ikhwanis to try to get in our good books

Ankara could hand over some 15 Ikhwan leaders to Cairo in a bid to pave the way for a rapprochement between the countries, unnamed sources allegedly in the know tell Al Ain. Egypt has made the handing over of Ikhwan figures a precondition for continuing bilateral talks with Turkey to reestablish diplomatic relations.

A breakthrough? Talks will resume next month when an Egyptian delegation travels to Ankara for a new round of discussions. Attempts by both sides to mend bilateral relations have been at a standstill since the two sides last met in Cairo in May. Ankara has made several other attempts to get into Egypt’s good books in past months, including telling Turkish media in March to tone down criticism of Egypt, and offering to negotiate a possible maritime pact with Egypt and dial back tensions in the EastMed.
