Muslim Brotherhood, Stumbling Stone on Track of Ankara-Cairo Relations

Cairo- A positive atmosphere has prevailed over the tense relations between Turkey and Egypt that lasted for three years due to Turkey’s rejection to cope with the new political reality represented in removing the Muslim Brotherhood from the authority.

However, the Muslim Brotherhood seems to be a stumbling stone especially after calling on the dismissed students from Egyptian universities to register and resume their studies in the new university established in Istanbul.

High-rank Egyptian and Turkish officials hinted in August that relations might improve. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim expressed also earlier willingness to enhance relations with Egypt.

A reliable source in the Ministry of Education in Egypt said that the Turkish university offered students coming from Egypt the opportunity to resume their studies in it, in addition to scholarships, knowing that tuition reaches up to USD5,000 in normal cases.

Egyptian authorities have also taken strict procedures in the beginning of this scholar year to combat any aggressive actions that could possibly occur in universities, a total of 26 public universities.

Every now and then Egyptian universities witness turbulence by the Muslim Brotherhood students who are demanding to release the students arrested during the events that have been taking place in the country since the removal of Mohamed Mursi in 2013.

The source added that the universities are equipped with modern equipment to disclose suspicious bodies and strict conditions are being followed to approve the formation of compounds inside the Egyptian universities. One of these conditions is that the student should not be sanctioned before for being involved in the aggression in Egypt.

Later, the Ministry of Education of Egypt allowed the security forces to enter universities to protect and guard the facilities; students are being inspected to prevent entering any tools for aggression usage.

According to the source, no specific number has been announced of the students who are still under detention for aggression accusations.
