Relations Between Turkey and Egypt

Turkey and Egypt have strong ties stemming from history and common culture. Since 2013, diplomatic relations are maintained at the level of Chargés d’affaires in both countries.

The consular section of our Embassy in Cairo as well as our Consulate General in Alexandria continue to provide consular services. There are approximately six thousand Turkish residents in Egypt. We continue to participate in meetings and forums held by international multilateral bodies in Egypt. Yunus Emre Turkish Cultural Center was opened in Cairo in 2010 on the basis of a bilateral agreement. Turkish language courses held in this center are met with high demand.
