ANKARA - Turkish President Abdullah Gul has sent a message to Egypt's interim leader in a bid to maintain diplomatic ties despite Ankara's refusal to officially recognize his government, officials said on Wednesday.

Turkey has emerged as one of the fiercest international critics of what it has called an "unacceptable coup" after Egypt's military ousted the elected president, Mohamed Morsi, from office earlier this month.

Gul's office said on Wednesday the Turkish president had sent a written message congratulating interim president Adli Mansour on the anniversary of Egypt's July 23, 1952 revolution.

Relations between Turkey's government, which like Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood has Islamist roots, and Egypt are in diplomatic limbo, with Ankara saying that while it will work with the government it does not officially recognize it.
