Cairo, SANA – Egyptian Foreign Ministry condemned the Turkish President Reccep Tayyip Erdogan’s statements during his speech at the World Economic Forum as a “continuation of the series of lies which the Turkish President is repeating on the situations in Egypt.”
In a statement on Monday, the Ministry said that the Turkish President’s meddling in the internal affairs of other countries and his support to the terrorist organizations whether through political support or through financing and harboring the terrorists aims at spreading chaos and damaging the interests of the peoples of the region, particularly in Libya, Syria and in Iraq and that behavior should not be condoned.
The statement added “Those following up the interior affairs of Turkey during the past recent years could infer that Erdogan, who claims that he is the sponsor of democracy and the defender of the so-called revolutions of Arab Spring, has nothing to do with the real democracy and he is not in a situation that allows him to preach.”
The Ministry also called upon the international community and the UN to take firm stance in this regard.
