Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday said, the different messages which came from international community led up to the massacre in Egypt as it happened in Syria.
Davutoglu in a press conference after meeting with his counterpart Guido Westerwelle in Berlin, said, unfortunately the different messages from international community paved the way for Egypt where a belief spread for telorating rigoristic people as it happened in Syria, and lately the massacre where hundreds of Egyptian people who were peacuful protesters were killed on August 14.
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.
Davutoglu also talked about racist attacks againts Turkish people in Germany and thanked German government and Westerwelle for their efforts to relieve the sufferings in that regard.
Pointing that they would not allow those who wanted to create trouble between Turkey and Germany regarding racist attacks and added, fighting against racism was everyone's duty.

Referring to latest developments in Syria, Westerwelle said, "the attitude of Turkey, Germany and Europe is very clear".
Regarding the report of the National Socialist Underground (NSU) case about killing 8 people of Turkish origin, 10 people in total between 2000 and 2007, Westerwelle said, they discussed the report which was prepared by German parliament and added, terrorism and racism could not take place in Germany.
Mr. Fuller in his lengthy comment argues that the Gulen Movement (GM) is a civilian movement that has nothing to do with violence and political ambitions. Well, based on our experience in recent years, I would say, in the simplest words, the following: That’s what we thought so, Mr. Fuller, but it was a long time ago! It is over now, we have changed our minds dramatically in recent years about the possible real intentions and ambitions of this so called “movement.”
