Diplomat: Egyptian Foreign Ministry summons Turkish ambassador to Cairo

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry summoned Turkish Ambassador to Cairo Hussein Avni to inform him that recent statements by Turkish officials exceeded all diplomatic traditions and mutual respect and that they represent an intervention into Egyptian affairs, a diplomatic source said on Tuesday.

The source added that during the meeting Avni was also informed that although Egypt is keen on having good relations with Turkey, there should be similar enthusiasm from the Turkish side in order to place bilateral relations above narrow partisan interests.
