Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 28
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Egypt canceled all economic agreements with Turkey, which were signed during ex-president Mohamed Morsi's term of office, Mena agency reported Oct. 28.
This decision was made after the Turkish government announced that Ankara does not recognize the legitimacy of the Egyptian government as it has been created as a result of a military coup, the agency said.
The agreements signed between Ankara and Cairo during Mohamed Morsi's term of office, contradict to the economic interests of Egypt, the statement says.
It was envisaged that the agreements will be in effect until March 2015.
Turkey and Egypt signed 27 economic agreements, in particular in the field of railway transport and shipping in 2012.
