- Adly Mansour expresses frustration with Turkey and Qatar
- He speaks in his first interview since he was installed by the military
- He denies there will be a return to a police state
- Mansour defends the actions of police in the crackdown on supporters of Mohamed Morsy
(CNN) -- Egypt is reconsidering its ties with countries that haven't been supportive of the government that the military installed after ousting the country's first democratically elected president, the interim president said.
Speaking in his first televised interview since Egypt's powerful generals put him in office, Adly Mansour singled out Turkey and Qatar for criticism. Both those regional neighbors have condemned a crackdown last month by Egyptian authorities on supporters of the ousted president Mohamed Morsy that left hundreds of people dead.
"Our patience is running out regarding the Qatari stance," Mansour, 67, said in the interview aired by state television Tuesday.
"The Turkish reaction has reflected short-sightedness and personal interest, not realizing the amount of cooperation between the two countries," Mansour said, according to an account of the interview published by state-run media outlet Al-Ahram.
Tensions with Turkey
Unlike Qatar, which initially welcomed the military's installation of Mansour and his administration, Turkey has been critical of the forced change of government in Cairo from the start.
