Erdogan is keen for another handshake from El Sisi

The handshake that buried the hatchet? Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hinted that he could meet formally with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi as the two countries look to mend a decade-long rift. In comments to a Turkish TV channel, Erdogan said “the process with Egypt has started” and “after minister-level talks, we will get together.” His comments come days after the Egyptian and Turkish presidents shared a handshake when they met for the first time at the World Cup in Qatar. The pair spoke for 30-45 minutes and were “happy” with the meeting, Erdogan revealed yesterday. Reuters and Bloomberg have more.

MEANWHILE- El Sisi will visit India on 26 January next year, where he has been invited as the “chief guest” at celebrations to mark the 74th anniversary of Indian independence, according to an Indian Foreign Ministry statement.
