Turkiye agreed to provide its increasingly popular drones to Egypt after the two countries normalized ties following a decade of rupture, Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said on Sunday.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is set to travel to Egypt on Feb. 14 to meet counterpart Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, in his first visit since Ankara and Cairo upgraded relations by appointing ambassadors last year.
Fidan told private A Haber television that Turkiye’s leader will discuss bilateral and regional issues including trade, energy and security with El-Sisi.
“Normalization in our relations is important for Egypt to have certain technologies. We have an agreement to provide (Egypt) unmanned air vehicles and other technologies,” Fidan said, without further elaborating.
