Turkey and Egypt are on the verge of restoring full diplomatic relations which could have implications for the whole region.
After years of animosity, Turkey and Egypt are working to restore ties.
Diplomatic relations plunged in 2013 when the current Egyptian president led a military coup that toppled democratically elected leader Mohamed Morsi.
Turkey has since taken in a number of prominent Muslim Brotherhood figures who fled Egypt.
A decade later, attempts to repair their relationship could have far-reaching implications across the region and could affect political ties, presidential elections and economies.
But what challenges do they face? And what does this mean for the region?
