Interim Prime Minster Essam Sharaf hailed Egypt’s bilateral relations with Turkey ‎during a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Cairo ‎Saturday.‎
    
‎“Both Egypt and Turkey are regional powers in the Middle East. They are both ‎influential ... They are also cooperating with each other in certain domains,” Sharaf said. ‎

In return, Davutoglu stressed that “Turkey has supported the Egyptian Revolution and is ‎willing to offer all forms of political and economic support for Egypt to help it in the ‎transitional period to democracy, as well as to help it overcome its financial problems.”‎

Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is to pay Cairo a visit on 20 July to ‎further discuss the countries’ bilateral relations.

Furthermore, Sharaf sat down with Minister of Interior Mansour El-Eissawi to discuss the ‎security status following bloody clashes between protesters and central security forces ‎last week.
