Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi insisted on his "constitutional legitimacy" on Tuesday and called on the army to withdraw its threat to intervene unless he resolves his differences with his opponents.

"President Morsi insists on (his) constitutional legitimacy and rejects any attempt to overstep it," said a message posted on his official Twitter account.

"(He) calls on the armed forces to withdraw their warning and rejects any dictates, domestic or foreign."
