Egypt orders Turkish ambassador to leave
Turkish ambassador to Cairo has been considered persona non grata and will be ordered to leave the country because of Turkey’s continued “interference” in Egyptian internal affairs, Egypt’s Foreign Ministry has said.
A statement issued by the Ministry’s spokesman on Saturday said the government has decided to lower diplomatic representation to the level of charge d’affaires.
It said Egypt has already recalled its own ambassador to Turkey. Egypt has denounced Turkish criticism of the Egyptian military’s overthrow of Islamist President Mohamed Morsy.
