Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Egypt should free ousted Islamist president Mohammad Morsi from jail and lift death sentences against his supporters before Ankara could consider an improvement in relations with Cairo.Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood has close ties with Turkey's ruling AK Party, which Erdogan co-founded and which has emerged as one of the fiercest international critics of Morsi's removal, calling it an "unacceptable coup" by the army.Erdogan said there were around 18,000 political prisoners who should be retried and bans on political parties in Egypt, which he says are arbitrary, should be removed.Egypt has complained about previous comments made by Erdogan against Sisi and rejected Turkey's criticism of the government.
