Indicating the importance of EU meeting held on Wednesday, Davutoglu said, while elected President was in the jail and former president Mubarak was released from prison, it would be too hard to maintain hope for democracy in Egypt.
My objection is to imprisonment of an elected president, said Davutoglu and added, no one including Turkey and EU cannot interfere in internal affairs of Egypt but no one can disregard the will of Egyptian people in the elections and when it comes to human rights, everyone has the right to say someting about it and "l am glad to hear that we have similar opinions with Westerwelle" on this matter.
