Espionage Arrest Puts Further Pressure on Strained Egyptian-Turkish Relationship


There are credible arguments to be made that Turkish-Egyptian relations have literally never been worse since the two countries took shape as modern states. The two countries had exchanged ambassadors soon after WWII, signed a free trade agreement in 2005, and been declared by Ankara to be part of an “axis of democracy” as recently as 2011.
Since Egyptian military ousted the country’s former president Mohammed Morsi amid mass protests demanding his resignation, things have taken a turn. Both countries have recalled their ambassadors, though there has since then been a partial restoration. On the economic front, Turkey this week froze a credit line that Ankara had offered to Cairo during Morsi’s tenure.
