Erdogan’s comments on Egypt is interference in Arab affairs: Arab League

The recently elected Turkish president has been an outspoken critic of the ouster of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi


Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan gestures the four-finger salute used by supporters of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, a symbol known as "Rabaa", which means four in Arabic, remembering those killed in the crackdown on the Rabaa al-Adawiya protest camp in Cairo in early 2013, as he delivers a speech in Trabzon on November 23, 2013. Turkey declared Egypt's ambassador "persona non grata" and downgraded diplomatic relations to the level of charge d'affaires on November 23, in a tit-for-tat move after Cairo expelled its envoy, the foreign ministry said in a statement. Erdogan said his government would never respect military-installed rulers, in remarks made after Egypt's expulsion of Ankara's ambassador.    (AFP PHOTO/STRINGER)

Secretary General of the Arab League Nabil El-Araby expressed “regret” over Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s recent comments on Egypt.

El-Araby said that he views the recently elected president’s comments as “interference of internal Arab affairs”, in a post on his official social media on Saturday.

Erdogan questioned the legitimacy of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi during his address at the UN General Assembly last Thursday. Al-Sisi addressed the assembly himself earlier in the same session.

The Egyptian foreign ministry accused Erdogan of “spreading lies and fabrications”.

Erdogan has been an outspoken opponent of the military-backed ouster of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, resulting in the downgrading of diplomatic ties between Turkey and Egypt.
