Egypt has suspended agreements signed with the Turkish government for the restoration of antiquities.

Egypt has suspended agreements it had previously signed with the Turkish government for the restoration of Islamic and Ottoman-era antiquities, Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said on Monday.

Ibrahim, who was touring historic sites near the coastal city of Alexandria, added that his ministry had taken the decision due to "the Turkish position on Egypt's June 30 revolution," in reference to official Turkish criticisms of the Egyptian military's July 3 ouster of elected president Mohamed Morsi.

Relations between Cairo and Ankara have cooled since the army's removal of Morsi, the country's first democratically elected president.
