Turkish FM received Egyptian envoy to Ankara

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu held a meeting with the Egyptian Ambassador Abdurrahman Salahaddin in Ankara July 19 over the tensions between both countries that peaked after Turkey adopted a critical stance vis-à-vis the military takeover in Egypt.

The meeting was held following the ambassador’s request, daily Hürriyet reported.

Despite publicly calling for the release of the ousted President Mohamed Morsi, who has been incommunicado since the takeover on July 3, Ankara insisted that the communication lines were not closed.
