Egypt irked by Erdogan's comments on Palestinians
Egypt will summon the Turkish charge d'affaires in protest of comments made by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, who accused Egypt of lacking a sincere approach to the Palestinian issue, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday.


Erdogan made the comments in a recent interview with broadcaster CNN. The most senior Turkish diplomat in Egypt was already summoned earlier this month after Erdogan called Egypt's President an "illegitimate tyrant".
