A delegation of senior Turkish diplomats will pay Egypt an official visit early in May, Turkey's foreign minister announced on Thursday, APA reports citing AA.

Speaking on a televised interview on a private Turkish broadcaster, Mevlut Cavusoglu said Egypt had invited the Turkish side for the visit, which is to be held at the deputy foreign minister-level.

After this meeting between delegations, Cavusoglu said he could meet his Egyptian counterpart as well.
