Turkey wants estranged Egypt to be part of working group on Libya

Turkey has expressed willingness for Egypt to take part in a proposed working group formed to coordinate international efforts in Libya, which has been mired in conflict following an uprising that toppled veteran leader Muammar Gaddafi five years ago, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavu?o?lu has said. 

Triumph and tragedy

Exactly five years after Egypt's democratic revolution triumphed, the country is once more ruled by a military office. General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi seized power in July 2013 and is even nastier than his predecessors.

More than 600 Egyptians were sentenced to death last year, mostly in mass trials, and most of the cases involved people who had gone to pro-democracy protests. 

Turkey may hold ministerial-level contact with Egypt for now, says President

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an has categorically ruled out meeting with Egypt's President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi until death penalty sentences for ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders are lifted, while giving a green light for ministerial-level talks between the two estranged countries.

The impossibility of Turkey bashing Saudi Arabia

This is what President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an said about the recent execution of 47 convicts by Saudi Arabia: "47 people have been sentenced to death. Turkey does not have the death sentence, but the executions in Saudi Arabia are an internal legal matter. In Egypt, nearly 1,000 death sentences were handed out. Hey world: Why are you not talking about that?
