Recent politic developments in the Middle East have led to a positive move in uniting Egypt and Turkey. Following the time of unrest that has been labelled ‘the Arab spring’, the government of Turkey are keen to strengthen ties with their Egyptian allies.
Last week the Egyptian President, Mohamed Morsi, paid a visit to Turkey and signed a billion dollar loan agreement to give support to bilateral trade. President Morsi has also endorsed the idea of Cairo opening a new TV channel in Egypt that will be aired in the Turkish language. Since the beginning of the Egyptian Presidents rule, he has made it clear that he wants to encourage solidarity between the Middle East and Turkey.
