Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said relations between Egypt and Turkey have seen progress.
"The issue (of normalizing relations) has not yet reached the next step but there is some progress that we hope we will build on," Shoukry said in an interview with the local MBC Egypt channel late on Oct. 1.
Turkey and Egypt have agreed to continue their consultations confirming their desire to make progress in areas under discussion and the need for further steps to facilitate normalization of their relations, a foreign ministry statement said on Sept. 8 after two-days long reconciliation talks.
Bulgaria's national volleyball team under 19 lost the final of the World Cup in Tehran with 0:3 sets (-20, -19, - 19) against Poland and thus remained with the silver medals, which is also a huge success.
The Bulgarians offered almost no resistance to their opponent, as the fatigue from the two grueling matches against Italy and Russia, won after a tiebreak, clearly had its say.
Turkey and Egypt will hold the second round of political consultations next week in Ankara as part of mutual efforts to mend broken ties.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry announced on Aug. 31 that Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt Hamdi Loza will be in Ankara on Sept. 7-8 and will meet Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Önal on Sept. 7 and 8.
