CAIRO: Egypt has taken strong objection to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's comments that "Rabaa sign" adopted by the supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi is a symbol of denouncing injustice.Islamist supporters of Morsi have adopted the "Rabaa sign" - four-finger salute - during recent protests as a symbol of defiance to the interim government.The "narrow" partisan vision of Erdogan is driving Egypt into a path it wants to avoid in order to preserve the historic relations between the two countries, presidential spokesperson Ehab Badawy said."Egypt is re-evaluating its relationship with Turkey in light of such statements," he said. "They came when we were considering the return of the Egyptian ambassador to Ankara."At a meeting of his Turkish Justice and Development Party on Sunday, Erdogan said the "Rabaa sign" is not only a symbol for the just cause of the Egyptian people, but also a sign of denouncing injustice and persecution in all parts of the world.
