DOHA, Qatar — Egypt's Islamist president has warned he will deal "firmly" and "decisively" with any foreign attempt to meddle in the affairs of his country, mired in turmoil for most of the two years since Hosni Mubarak's ouster.

Mohammed Morsi says Egypt does not interfere in other countries' domestic affairs and expects to be treated similarly.

He told an Arab League summit Tuesday in Qatar that "We don't accept anyone sticking his finger inside Egypt." But he didn't elaborate.

Egypt is embroiled in a tug of war pitting Morsi and his Islamist allies against a mostly secular and liberal opposition.

The crippling political impasse is compounded by economic woes and tenuous security.
