Egypt to rethink its real friends

  • Egypt has been rethinking its ties with countries that haven't supported the government installed by the military after Mohamed Morsi was ousted. 

    Both Turkey and Qatar have condemned crackdown by authorities in Egypt on supporters of the ousted president, which left many people dead in the country. 

    Adly Mansour said in an interview that their patience is running where the stance Qatar is concerned. "The Turkish reaction has reflected short-sightedness and personal interest, not realizing the amount of cooperation between the two countries."

    Egyptian authorities had declared a state of emergency for a month and Monsour defended this decision.

    "There was no other alternative to confront the organized danger the nation was facing," he said.
