Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit wrote to his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu that Egypt reject's Erdogan's call for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to resign.
The letter explained that Egypt sees these words as intervention in internal matters and incitement.
Gheit also called on Turkey not to publish more statements that can harm the relations between the two countries.
Last week, Gheit lamented Iran's comments on the current situation in
Egypt, saying that the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khaminei is "distracting the
Iranian people's attention by hiding behind what is happening in Egypt."
