Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Overthrow of Morsi disrespects Egyptian people
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 11 /Trend A.Taghiyeva /
In the events that are taking place in Egypt and the whole Middle East, Turkey supports the position of the people, but not some other separate forces, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said, Anadolu agency reported on Thursday.
According to Davutoglu, the overthrown Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was elected democratically and his removal from power is a manifestation of disrespect toward the will of the people.
The Minister also added that Turkey is ready to provide any assistance to Egypt to restore democracy in the country.
Clashes between supporters and opponents of President Mohamed Morsi have been continuing after the Egyptian military suspended the constitution of Egypt and ousted Morsi from power on July 3.
Egyptian Islamists do not recognise these decisions and demand the return of power to the legally elected president.
On July 10 Egypt's Prosecutor General's Office issued a decree to arrest the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood movement. As for the President Morsi, he is currently not charged with any crime.
