Cairo has cancelled naval exercises with Turkey scheduled to take place in October to protest Ankara's "clear interference" in Egypt's domestic affairs, the foreign ministry said on Friday.

The measures were in "protest at the unacceptable Turkish statements and actions which represent a clear interference in Egypt's domestic affairs and stand against the will of the Egyptian people," the minstry said in a statement.
