Greater Middle East (bbabo.net), - Erdogan's ally in the ruling coalition, the head of the Turkish Nationalist Movement Party, Devlet Bahceli, said that it is not worth dwelling on Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and it is also necessary to create the ground for a dialogue with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This was reported by the Turkish media on November 22. And this must be done, according to Bahceli, in order to effectively counteract terrorist organizations.
As reported by bbabo.net, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a brief meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Qatar on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the World Cup. It is noteworthy that in 2019, Erdogan said that he would never meet with a man like President al-Sisi: “First of all, under a general amnesty, all political prisoners should be released,” the Turkish leader said then. The meeting between the presidents of Turkey and Egypt was organized by the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The split between the two countries dates back to the 2013 overthrow of the late Egyptian President of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Morsi, who was supported by the government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Earlier, Erdogan also said that he could reconsider relations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad after the presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for June next year.
Answering a question about a possible meeting with the Syrian leader, Erdogan said that there are no eternal grievances or quarrels in politics. It is noteworthy that earlier there were reports in the media about the possibility of normalizing relations between Erdogan and Assad. In particular, the news portal Kurdpeess reported in August that the leaders of Turkey and Syria are likely to have a telephone conversation in the near future. According to Turkish sources, Russian leader Vladimir Putin approached Recep Tayyip Erdogan with a similar proposal during a meeting of the two presidents in Sochi.
