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.
