Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s long-awaited visit to Gaza Strip has been postponed due to the unfolding political turmoil in Egypt, Erdoğan’s chief advisor said on Wednesday.

İbrahim Kalın, chief advisor to Erdoğan, said via his Twitter account that the visit has been delayed due to the prolonged crisis in Egypt.

The Turkish prime minister was expected to visit Gaza in mid-June, but the trip was postponed due to the Gezi protests.

When Erdoğan planned to go to the coastal city in early July, the coup in Egypt changed his plans and led to another delay.
