CAIRO (AP) — Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Edrogan held talks in Cairo with his Egyptian counterpart in efforts to rally support for growing demands that Israel halt its war against Hamas in Gaza. Erdogan’s visit comes as ties between Ankara and Cairo are back on track after years of tensions and frosty relations. Turkey has long been a backer of the pan-Islamist Muslim Brotherhood group, which has been outlawed as a terrorist organization in Egypt. Erdogan met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi at Cairo’s Ittihadiya palace on Wednesday. El-Sissi said their talks focused on bilateral relations and regional challenges, especially efforts to stop the war in Gaza.
