“The speech disregards the will of the Egyptian people embodied in the June 30 revolution,” the statement said.

“These lies are not strange to the Erdogan, who is keen to trigger chaos and division in the Middle East through his support for terrorist organizations to harm the interests of the region’s peoples with the aim of achieving his own aspirations,” it added.

As a result, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri decided to cancel a planned meeting sought by the Turkish Foreign Minister on the sidelines of the General Assembly meeting.
