Justice and Development (AK) Party Deputy Chairman Mevlut Cavusoglu said they were conducting an analysis to see whether or not the same circles were behind the Gezi Park events and Egyptian coup. Speaking to Anadolu Agency (AA), Cavusoglu evaluated the developments in Egypt following his talks with Egyptian ambassador in Ankara. He pointed out that the same forces could have played role behind Gezi Park events and Egyptian coup, and added that as AK Party they were conducting a research about the backgrounds of two events, and would inform the public after completing the study. Regarding his meeting with Abd Ar Rahman Salahaddin, Egypt's Ambassador to Turkey, Cavusoglu said, it  did not mean recognizing the army-appointed administration of Egypt.

Reminding that Salahaddin was on duty during the previous administration as well, Cavusoglu said Turkey kept all the negotiation channels open with Egypt.

"However," he said, "from the beginning we told them clearly that we were against the coups. We told them that we would not send a greeting message to the army-appointed administration."

Cavusoglu defined the positions of European countries, and EU instutions as "faltering", as they could not put forth a clear and quick reaction against the coup.
