ISTANBUL- Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday said the army's overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi was a "military coup", and "unacceptable".

"The removal of President Mohamed Morsi, who came to power through a democratic election, by the intervention of the Egyptian army is an extremely worrying situation," Davutoglu told reporters in Istanbul.

"Leaders who come to power with open and transparent elections reflecting the will of the people can only be removed by elections, that is, the will of the nation," he said.

"It is unacceptable for a government that has come to power through democratic elections to be toppled through illicit means and, even more, a military coup."
