Erdogan's call irritates Muslim Brotherhood
Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan's call for a secular state in Egypt has raised Muslim Brotherhood's anger , Al Arabiya reported.
Addressing a meeting of the Arab League in Cairo on Sept. 13 Erdogan stated the necessity of adopting a secular constitution in Egypt.
Muslim Brotherhood's spokesman Muhammad Ghozlan rejected this call, saying 'the experience of other states cannot be applied in Egypt'.
He regarded Erdogan's calls for secular constitution in Egypt as interference into other country's internal affairs.
Founded in 1928, Muslim Brotherhood is the world's oldest and one of the largest Islamic groups, which is regarded as the largest political opposition organization in Egypt.
Erdogan kicked off his visit to Egypt on Tuesday as part of a tour of North African Arab countries.
He had talks with the Chairman of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces of Egypt Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, Prime Minister Isam Sharif and the Secretary General of the League of Arab States Nabil al-Arabi.
Erdogan is scheduled to visit Tunis on Sept. 14. He will leave Tunis for Libya on Sept. 15 to hold talks with the Head of the Interim Transitional National Council Mustafa Abdul Jalil.
