ANKARA, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister RecepTayyip Erdogan said Mohammed Morsi remained Egypt’s president.
Erdogan said he considered impossible the telephone contacts with the Egyptian liberal leader Mohamed ElBaradei.
“How can I communicate with you?” Erdogan told ElBaradei. “You were not elected. The government after a coup d’etat appointed you. And moreover, it swore to you,” he said.
The prime minister recalled that the former IAEA head received 1.5 percent of votes at the 2011 elections while Morsi 52 percent. “I consider Morsi Egypt’s president because I respect the people of the country. If ElBaraedi was elected then, I’d said the same. But he was not elected,” Erdogan said.
Egyptians “will not sit out and have started the legitimate fight against the coup d’etat”, the Turkish prime minister said.
