The backlash came after Turkey Defence Minister Hulusi Akar's comments on Libya in an interview with a Qatari television.

Dr Anwar Gargash, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, on Saturday urged Turkey to stop interfering in Arab affairs, mockingly referring to the Ottoman empire which collapsed a century ago.

The backlash came after Turkey Defence Minister Hulusi Akar's comments on Libya in an interview with a Qatari television.

Turkey can no longer behave like "the Sublime Porte and use the language of colonialism", Dr Gargash said, referring to the government of the Ottoman empire which ruled the Arab world for centuries. "The Sublime Porte and colonialist illusions belong to the archives of history...and relations between states are not conducted with threats," Dr Gargash wrote.
