In response to Egypt's decision to expel Ankara's ambassador from Cairo, Turkish President Abdullah Gul spoke live on state run TRT television saying, "I hope our relations will again get back to its track."

But a Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said Ankara was in touch with the ambassador "and we will respond with reciprocal steps in coming hours."

Both sides had recalled their ambassadors in August for consultation after Egyptian security forces stormed into camps inhabited by supporters of deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi on August 14, killing hundreds.
