Egypt keeping close tabs on Turkey

June 13th, 2013
12:30 PM ET

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a good friend of the Egyptian government – when he visited post-revolution Cairo in late 2011, he received a hero’s welcome.

Now, Egypt is closely watching the protests in Turkey.

“We're watching it, but without alarm,” Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday. “Turkey, I think, has a solid democracy. And this is an internal affair. I know surely they can handle it within the boundaries and the rules and the role of democracy.”

Even though Turkey has a longer tradition of democracy than Egypt, the anger in cities like Istanbul and Anakra does mirror some of the secular and religious divide in Egypt that has played out over the past months.

“This is a very legitimate request,” Kandil said. "But the legitimate process to achieve one party's view, one's group's view, is to wait for election time and make sure that you get the proper vote so you can properly represent in the government.”

Kandil believes there will be a call for election in Egypt in the next three or four months.

“But it doesn't work that one group gets the microphone and says 'we want to be there;' another group gets another microphone and they want to be in the driving seat.”

In the video above you see Christiane Amanpour’s full interview with Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil.

    The comparison between what happened in Egypt and what is happening in Turkey is quite shocking. Where will Turkey be in two years? Somewhere similar to where Egypt is today, I wonder?

      Turkey's legitimacy and character will always be questioned until it ends its denial of the Armenian genocide.

    Amanpour hates to see both Turkey and Egypt powerful. that's why she takes deception and lies to new highs. Citizens of both countries, please be aware...

    Do Europe and the US decide who is to lead a country instead the people themselves? I think is time for the west to halt all forms of self interest aggression for a global peace to prevail.

    Amanpour is a reflection of CNN's inadequate coverage and bias! It clearly shows how CNN will do whatever it takes to prove that the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian president Morsi are so great!!! Amanpour starts off by blaming the problems in Egypt on the protestors as opposed to those in power!! How shameful!! She doesn't carry a fair report!! This stupid prime minister has all his facts wrong and I am pretty sure he was fed all the questions and how to answer it before filming this silly movie CNN is falsely calling a report!!! CNN is backing up president Obama and his disgraceful support of a terrorist organization in the Middle East, called the Muslim brotherhood. This terrorist organization wants to bring Egypt to the ground and have its people live in poverty so they can create a safe haven for terrorists!!! Wake up America!!! Obama and CNN think that Morsi and his mafia are doing the interest of the US but just like Sadam Hussein who America sponsored, Morsi and the Muslim brotherhood will destroy Egypt and create a safe haven for terrorists. But I guess that's what America wants so they can have an excuse to go and bomb and destroy Egypt like they did Iraq. Stay the hell out of the internal affairs in Egypt and if you are going to cover something then you better do it right unless CNN is just filled with crappy journalists who don't know how to do their job. In which case, these journalists, like Amanpour, should be fired so they don't represent the American country so poorly!!! Shame on you!!
