 , Updated 23:02, 14-Feb-2024

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi met with visiting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Cairo on Wednesday.

Erdogan, who arrived in Egypt earlier on Wednesday, said the humanitarian tragedy in Gaza topped the agenda of talks with Sisi as the two leaders held a joint press conference after their meetings.

"It is our priority to establish a ceasefire as soon as possible to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza without any obstacles," Erdogan told reporters, adding that Türkiye is ready for cooperation with Egypt to rebuild Gaza. 

The two presidents on Wednesday also signed a joint statement on the restructuring of high-level strategic cooperation council meetings and vowed to enrich bilateral relations.

For his part, Sisi said he looks forward to accepting President Erdogan's invitation to visit Türkiye in April to strengthen bilateral relations and seeks to raise trade volume with Türkiye to $15 billion over the next few years.
