Turkish Minister of Labor and Social Security Süleyman Soylu met with his Egyptian counterpart Mohmed Safaan Friday on the sidelines of the G20 Labor and Employment Ministers meeting in China to discuss future cooperation between the two countries.
According to a statement released by Egypt's Labor Ministry, Soylu underlined the importance of better relations between Egypt and Turkey in resolving the regional crisis.
Safaan for his part, said the ministry is ready to provide labor forces to Turkish projects in Egypt and added that the country welcomes Turkish firms planning to invest in Egypt.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu recently said that Turkey is prepared to reinitialize diplomatic and economic ties with Egypt, saying that, "A meeting on ministerial level could be held."
Turkish-Egyptian relations deteriorated after Egypt's first democratically elected president, Morsi, was ousted in July 2013, as well as the subsequent human rights violations that ensued. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had expressed support for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood since they faced a brutal crackdown, at the cost of souring relations with Egypt.
The coup regime of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has cracked down on journalists, academics and supporters of democracy who have been detained and held in military facilities, many of whom have died while in police custody as a result of mistreatment.
