Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s President bashes French President Emmanuel Macron after mentioning him as a liability to the country.
During the past few months, the tension between both the NATO members began over the political disagreements on Syria and the publications of Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) caricatures.
Erdogan stated, “Macron is a burden on France. Macron and France are going through a very dangerous period actually.”
He further added while discussing the protests in the cities of France and told, “My hope is that France gets rid of the Macron trouble as soon as possible.”
In the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute, Ankara and Paris also have exchanged allegations about their positions. France reports that Turkey has fuelled conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan, officially recognized as part of Azerbaijan but inhabited by ethnic Armenians.
Ankara, after weeks of combating compelled the Armenians to leave along with their troops from lands around Nagorno-Karabakh. Therefore, aided their ethnic Turkic kin in Azerbaijan refuses all the claims.
Turkey claimed that France, the co-chair of the Minsk group set up to mediate the matter, was not reasonable. On Friday, Erdogan stated that because of his support for Armenia, Paris’ position as a mediator was no more” and slammed a French Senate resolution this week recommending that Nagorno-Karabakh be acknowledged as a republic.
“(Azeri President) Ilham Aliyev had some advice for the French. What did he say? ‘If they love Armenians so much, then they should give Marseilles to the Armenians’. I am making the same recommendation. If they love them so much, they should give Marseilles to the Armenians,” he said.
