During their phone conversation, Mr. Erdogan discussed the Gaza conflict and the humanitarian efforts being made to assist the civilian population.

The Turkish president emphasized the urgency of achieving a ceasefire as soon as possible.

The political relations between Egypt and Turkey have undergone significant fluctuations over the years, shaped by historical, regional, and ideological factors.
