Egypt's presidential office: Dubai police chief statements are not our responsibility
Yasser Ali, acting spokesman to President Mohamed Morsi, stated on Monday that the Muslim Brotherhood is responsible for answering any statements by Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan, and not the presidential office.
Police chief Khalfan commented on Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Mohamed Morsi, won the presidential elections.
"If they tried to shake the security of the Gulf, bloodshed will be up to their knees," Khalfan wrote on his Twitter account, among other negative statements about the Brotherhood and Egypt's new president.
On Thursday, Egypt's official news agency MENA reported that the Emirati envoy to Cairo was summoned to request "clarification from the United Arab Emirates about statements that are not in line with the nature of the special relationship between the two countries."

On Saturday, Khalfan said that he had received 1,500 threats on his mobile phone from the Brotherhood for posting a message on Twitter against the Brotherhood candidate's win in the presidential elections.
