Crise diplomatique entre l'Egypte et la Turquie, les relations réduites.

La crise entre l'Egypte et la Turquie, née avec la destitution du président islamiste Mohamed Morsi et la répression de ses partisans, s'est aggravée samedi, Le Caire expulsant l'ambassadeur de Turquie en réduisant sa représentation diplomatique et Ankara appliquant la "réciprocité".
Il s'agit de la mesure diplomatique la plus drastique prise par l'Egypte face aux critiques qui se sont élevées à l'étranger contre la répression menée par les autorités installées par l'armée. Celle-ci a fait plus d'un millier de morts, en majorité des manifestants pro-Morsi, et conduit à plusieurs milliers d'arrestations.
Le Premier ministre turc Recep Tayip Erdogan, proche de la confrérie des Frères musulmans à laquelle appartient M. Morsi, avait qualifié sa destitution le 3 juillet par l'armée de "coup d'Etat". Depuis la dispersion le 14 août dans un bain de sang de manifestants pro-Morsi, il a multiplié les condamnations, évoquant un "très grave massacre" de manifestants "pacifiques".

German Bild carried Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on its cover with the caption “New Dictator,” depicting Erdoğan with a Hitler-like moustache. The cover was then featured on the front page of Turkish daily Takvim, who itself dubbed Merkel a “Nazi.”
