Turkey has begun evaluating the fallout of the Egyptian army's ouster of democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi on the region, with particular focus on how developments could impact on the ongoing civil war in neighbouring Syria.

Turkey has begun to evaluate the potential impacts of the Egyptian army’s overthrow of democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi on the region, with an emphasis on how the development could affect the ongoing internal fight in neighboring Syria.
 
“The Egyptian army’s intervention will have serious impacts on the region and on the course of the Arab Spring. But it’s very hard to estimate how the impact will show itself,” a senior Foreign Ministry official told the Hürriyet Daily News in an initial evaluation. “Syria will surely be affected as well, but it’s really hard to say how things will change in the field form now on.”
 
Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioğlu and Deputy Undersecretary Ömer Önhon spent the night at the ministry yesterday and were in constant touch with Turkish Ambassador to Cairo Hüseyin Avni Botsalı.
 
Botsalı’s mandate as the ambassador ended on June 30, but the government asked him to stay a few days more to observe the developments in the country before he was scheduled to move to his new posting, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the meantime, President Abdullah Gül is set to receive Turkey’s new ambassador to Egypt, Ahmet Yıldız, in Istanbul this afternoon.
