The new Egyptian Ambassador to Turkey, Amr El-Hamami, affirmed his intention to enhance Egyptian-Turkish relations. This came during the presentation of the Ambassador of Cairo to Ankara, his credentials to the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Ambassador Amr El-Hammami expressed “his pride in being appointed as the first ambassador of Egypt to Turkey in more than 10 years.”

El-Hamami emphasized “his intention to work on strengthening and enhancing Egyptian-Turkish relations in all fields.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan received the new Egyptian Ambassador to Ankara, Amr El-Hamami, and accepted his credentials during a reception at the Turkish Presidential Complex in the capital, Ankara.
