Erdogan’s statements exposed the initial discussions between Egypt and Turkey to failure

And he said Erdogan In press statements that followed the Friday prayer, it was reported by the official Turkish Anadolu Agency: “We seek to restore unity with historical roots with the people of Egypt And continue it again”.

But Turkish President He added, “Turkey is a proudly resilient country, and it is not a country that others determine what it does in foreign policy.”

The Egyptian researcher in international relations, Muhammad Fawzi, believes that the importance of the recent “exploratory talks” that took place between the Egyptian and Turkish sides was linked to the fact that they were the first of their kind in eight years, since the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown in Egypt.

As was expected, the talks represented a preliminary attempt to open a dialogue between the two sides on contentious issues, paving the way for “more productive” dialogues in the future, if there is a real political desire coupled with qualitative changes, especially on the Turkish side, especially in the common regional files, such asLibyan crisis The Eastern Mediterranean file, and the Syria and Iraq files.

The final statement of these talks expressed the nature and nature of these talks, so it was largely faint and ambiguous..

Lack of progress in dynamic files

Fawzi explains in a statement to “Sky News Arabia”, that the statement reflected, and some other evidence, “the lack of progress in the vital controversial files.”

The statement also expressed the Egyptian position, which does not want to rush towards reconciliation, before making sure that these moves reflect the existence of a real Turkish desire to build understandings in the contentious files, not just a maneuver through which Turkey aims to circumvent its internal crises and its regional isolation..

Absolutely incompatible with the position in Libya

Fawzi continues his speech by saying that “caution in the Egyptian position cannot be separated from the context surrounding these discussions, whether before or after the talks. The discussions were preceded by the emergence of some indications that show continued Turkish support for armed militias present in Libya, and an attempt to legitimize them within the framework of what is known as training and cooperation.” Turkish military with Libya, Which is under the cover of the agreements that were signed with the dissolved Government of National Accord. ”

The Turkish Foreign and Defense Ministers also affirmed the continued presence of Turkish forces in Libya, which contradicts the Egyptian position and demands, on top of which is the evacuation of mercenaries and foreign forces from Libya..

Fawzi says that after the talks, the Turkish president returned, on Friday, to pursue his hobby and make populist statements, which increase the suspicion between the two sides, and add more doubts about the sincerity of Turkish intentions.

Turkey refused to hand over the leaders of the Brotherhood

Fawzi explains that, regarding the issue of handing over leaders of the organization Brotherhood And, as some circles indicated, the Turkish delegation informed its Egyptian counterpart that Ankara could not hand over the leaders of the Brotherhood that Egypt requested, explaining that most of them have legal residency in Turkey.

He indicates that this was expected, because Ankara has not abandoned its regional expansion project in the region. In addition, the Turkish president does not want to lose his internal “Islamic” electoral bases because of this decision, especially with the challenges facing the Justice and Development Party in the 2023 elections, and backing down. The great popularity.

The dispute has prevailed between Egypt and Turkey since 2013, especially after the rule of the Brotherhood was overthrown after the revolution, and Ankara provided financial and logistical support to the group that carried out terrorist operations targeting Egyptian state institutions..

More recently, senior Turkish officials have indicated an improvement in relations with Egypt, in a shift from their previous sharpened critical approach towards the government of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi..

On March 12, Erdogan said that the two countries had conducted “intelligence, diplomatic and economic” contacts, adding that he hoped for “strong” relations between the two countries..
