AFP reported that Germany viewed the military intervention in Egypt as a "major setback to democracy."

Ikhwan Online, the website of the Muslim Brotherhood, posted a message conveying Brazil's disapproval of the military coup. "Brazil refuses to acknowledge the military takeover in Egypt," the message read. 

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague, for his part, said his country would back whoever was in power in Cairo, while branding what happened in Egypt as "popular intervention."

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas offered praise for the Egyptian army and sent his congratulations to Mansour.

Israel, meanwhile, remains cautious about the changes in Egypt.

Although its prime minister has refrained from releasing a statement, many MPs and Likud party members have expressed optimism regarding the resumption of ties -- including economic ones -- with Egypt.

Giora Eiland, a retired general and former Israeli national security adviser, when asked if most Israeli officials supported the military coup against Egypt's elected president, said: "I think so. Of course, they cannot say so," Reuters reported.

Similarly, Iran gave a guarded response, warning against "foreign and enemy opportunism during the difficult conditions that follow," Iranian Fars new agency quoted foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Araqchi as saying.
