    Cairo does not pay any attention to Turkey’s alleged attempts to meddle in Egypt’s internal affairs by agreeing to host a so-called alternative Egyptian parliament, Egyptian Deputy Defense Minister Mohamed Elkeshky told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik), Svetlana Alexandrova – The Muslim Brotherhood movement is an international religious and political association established in Egypt in 1928 and supported in a number of Arab countries. It was outlawed and branded as a terrorist organization in Egypt by President Abdul Fattah Sisi.

    The Turkish city of Istanbul currently hosts the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egyptian parliament-in-exile.

    "The only legitimately elected parliament is located in Egypt. We do not pay attention to such statements, and do not give heed to the fact that other countries are trying to interfere in our domestic affairs," Elkeshky said, commenting on Turkey’s role in destabilizing the region, in particular, through the support of the Muslim Brotherhood.
