Cairo - Egypt on Thursday said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's claim that former Islamist president Mohammed Morsi was killed is a "baseless" allegation.
Morsi, who was deposed by the military in 2013, died on Monday after suddenly collapsing inside a courtroom in Cairo.
Egyptian state media said that Morsi, a senior official in the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, died of a heart attack.
On Wednesday, Erdogan said Morsi did not die of natural causes, but was killed. He vowed that Turkey "will do whatever is needed to put Egypt on trial in international courts."
In response, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry on Thursday said that his country was ready to face any threats.
