Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's position toward the "coup-maker" Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is clear, Lutfullah Goktas told The Anadolu Agency.

"The reports regarding the meeting of Erdogan and Al-Sisi are absolutely not true. We had not any request or demand from the Egyptian delegations in New York to have a meeting," he said. "We don't have any kind of plan in that respect."

Egyptian media outlets claimed that a Turkish delegation under Erdogan would meet an Egyptian delegation under al-Sisi in New York.
