Egyptian FM warns Muslim bloc after its mocking of Sisi
Sisi was mocked after saying his fridge had nothing but water for a decade, in a message to Egyptians to bear harsh economic conditions
Egypt's Foreign Minister has protested remarks by the chief of the world's largest bloc of Muslim countries, for mocking Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi.
Sameh Shukry warned Iyad Madani, the head of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, on Saturday that Egypt will be "reviewing its position toward the secretariat of the organization."
This week, Madani mistakenly confused the Tunisian president's name with that of Egypt's el-Sisi, then told Essebsi, "I am sure your fridge has more than water."
He was mocking el-Sisi who claimed in a conference this week that for a decade his fridge had nothing but water, in a message to Egyptians to bear harsh economic conditions.
