Erdogan: Support for coup encouraged intervention

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, strongly condemning the bloody crackdown on people by the Egyptian security forces yesterday stated that international community’s support for the military coup has laid the ground for this intervention. “We condemn in the strongest terms the administration in Egypt for resorting to violence against peaceful demonstrators once again, despite all warnings,” said a statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister, as it called the attack on civilians “a heinous crime.” It noted that the fact that the international community has supported the military coup and remained silent on previous massacres, instead of protecting democracy and constitutional legitimacy in Egypt, has encouraged the current administration to conduct intervention yesterday and that the international community, especially the U.N. Security Council and Arab League, must act immediately to stop this massacre. “We invite the temporary administration in Egypt to stop committing bloody acts against its own people, to conduct a convincing and transparent judicial investigation against those who have been committing massacres since July 30, 2013, to release all political prisoners starting with Mohamed Morsi and to initiate a real and inclusive political transition period,” the Prime Ministry said, pledging a continuation of all sorts of support from Turkey for the fraternal people of Egypt so that they can “escape from the current environment of chaos as soon as possible.”
