Turkey's Erdogan shakes hands with Egypt's Sisi at World Cup

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan shook hands with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on the sidelines of the World Cup in Qatar on Sunday, a photo from Turkey's presidency showed.

The two countries started high-level political consultations last year amid a push by Turkey to ease tensions with US-allied Arab states.
