Turkey's foreign policy reset sign of Brotherhood's dwindling influence

In addition to economic concerns, the Muslim Brotherhood's dwindling influence in the region and new regional order emerged after the Abraham Accords forced Ankara to mend ties with Egypt.

Turkey’s Finance Minister Nureddin Nebati’s upcoming visit to Egypt scheduled for June 1 has created excitement, particularly among Turkey’s pro-government media outlets, as it will mark the first high-level visit from Ankara to Cairo after years of a deep freeze.

Nebati will attend the Islamic Development Bank summit to be convened in the Red Sea resort province of Sharm el-Sheikh, and he is also set to hold talks with “his counterparts” on the sidelines of the meeting, Turkey’s Finance and Treasury Ministry said in a statement without clarifying whether he will also meet with his Egyptian counterpart. The visit will mark the first ministerial-level meeting from Ankara to Cairo in nine years.
