Azerbaijan, Baku, August 20 /Trend A.Taghiyeva /
Israel stands behind all the events in Egypt, as a result of which the President Mohamed Morsi was ousted, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, TRT Haber channel reported on Tuesday.
According to the Prime Minister, when the Muslim Brotherhood organisation won the elections in Egypt in 2011, Israel showed its position by stating that there is no place for Islamists in Egypt, and that they will not be able to stay in power.
Erdogan also said that the West should learn democracy, as today it is far from the notion of democracy.
In recent years relations between Turkey and Egypt have sharply worsened. The Egyptian side accuses Turkey of interfering into its internal affairs.
Earlier, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the Egyptian army committed genocide against its own people while conducting dispersals of demonstrations by Morsi supporters which resulted in the deaths of more than 2000 civilians.
On August 14, the Egyptian army began to disperse ousted President Mohamed Morsi's supporters who were carrying out the demonstrations. The army was using military equipment and firearms during the dispersal.
