Egypt cancels joint naval exercise with Turkey

The Foreign Ministry has announced that Egypt has decided to cancel a joint naval exercise with Turkey entitled “Sea of ​​Friendship,” which was scheduled to take place from 21 to 28 October 2013 in Turkey.
This comes in protest to Turkish statements concerning Wednesday's security crackdown, which the ministry described as blunt interference in Egyptian affairs and which run counter to the will of the Egyptian people.
