"Whatever the reason is, it is unacceptable that a democratically elected government was overthrown by illegitimate means, even more, with a military coup," the Turkish foreign minister said in Istanbul on Thursday, Turkish daily Hurriyet reported.

Ahmet Davutoğlu criticized the military intervention in Egypt, saying that the  intervention should not overshadow the democratic gains of the January 25 revolution.

“Our message is clear: The January 25 revolution was the first big revolution of the 21st century. Protecting the gains of this revolution should be the priority of the Egyptian people. We totally reject the assessments that the ‘Arab Spring’ has turned into an ‘Arab Winter,’ or that Muslims cannot be governed by democracy,” Hurriyet  quoted Davutoğlu as saying.
