ISTANBUL, (PIC)– Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan is to visit Egypt on September 12 on an official visit, a Turkish official announced on Sunday, denying news reports that Erdogan would also visit Gaza Strip.

An official in the prime minister’s office, who wished to remain anonymous, said that Erdogan would visit Egypt, adding that there is no plan for him at present to visit Gaza.

A Turkish daily had earlier reported that Erdogan was planning to visit Gaza via the land route from Egypt during his Cairo visit in a show of condemnation of the Israeli siege imposed on the coastal enclave.
