ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has criticized the United States for rebuking the Turkish prime minister over his comments linking Israel to the Egyptian president's ouster.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggested this week that Israel was behind the overthrow of Egypt's Islamic leader Mohammed Morsi, prompting condemnation from the White House which said the comments were offensive, unsubstantiated and wrong.

In an interview aired on Kanal 24 station late Wednesday, Davutoglu said Erdogan's comments were about Israel and not the United States and said such public condemnation of Turkey's leader by "a friend and ally" was unacceptable.

Davutoglu also says Erdogan's comments were misinterpreted and that Erdogan was referring to a "mentality" that had led to a coup in Egypt and not a plot hatched by Israel.
