"We will continue the drilling activities that derive from our own legitimate rights uninterrupted", he told journalists at the port, after inspecting the ship, Yavuz.

Egypt's foreign minister on Thursday condemned as "irresponsible" accusations by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that his ousted Egyptian counterpart Mohamed Morsi had been killed.

Morsi, ousted in 2013 in a coup d'etat led by the incumbent president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, died aged 67 on 17 June, as a result of a heart attack during a court hearing on an espionage case in Cairo.

Turkey's lira dropped on Friday as investors anxious about the outcome of an Istanbul mayoral election on Sunday, as well as uncertainty over policymaking under President Tayyip Erdogan and possible United States sanctions.

"We, as Turkey, will follow this issue and do everything possible for Egypt to be tried in global courts for Morsi's death", he was quoted as saying by Dawn, calling on the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to take action towards this end.

Egyptian authorities have yet to comment on claims by Morsi's son.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Choukri has strongly condemned Turkish president Erdogan's statement that former Egyptian President Morsi was killed, calling it the "repeated, irresponsible accusations by the Turkish president about Egypt".

Turkish president also urged for a United Nations investigation into the unexpected demise of Egypt's first democratically-elected president in 2012.

Morsi, who was serving out a reduced 20-year sentence, was speaking in a court appearance on Tuesday before he fainted and was subsequently pronounced dead in hospital.
