Türkiye and Egypt may restore full diplomatic ties and re-appoint ambassadors mutually "in coming months," Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday.


Ankara and Cairo may re-start diplomatic consultations led by deputy foreign ministers as part of a normalization process "soon," Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara.


After years of tension, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan shook hands with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Qatar this month in what was described by the Egyptian presidency as a new start in bilateral relations.
