Macron sharply called Turkey



FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron has accused Turkey of cooperating with groups close to the Islamic State (IS) and claims that Ankara's lack of clarity on IS harms NATO allies fighting in Syria and Iraq.

Relations between Macron and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan have cooled off ahead of tomorrow's NATO summit in London, and two leaders do not stop tirades about Turkey's cross-border offensive against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria.



Speaking in the presence of US President Donald Trump, Macron linked Turkey directly with Islamic State fighters.

“They are the common enemies of the terrorist group today. I'm sorry to say, but we don't have the same definition of terrorism here at the table,” Macron said.

Macron's accusations of Turkey

“When I look at Turkey, I see it fighting those who fought side by side with us against IS and sometimes cooperating with related groups,” Macron noted.

The French president believes that this ambiguity of Turkey vis-à-vis the Islamist group is detrimental to everyone when it comes to the situation on the ground.

“The first priority is to have a very clear position on these groups and that is why we have begun to re-examine relations with Turkey,” Macron said.

Turkey, meanwhile, has announced that it will block a plan to defend the Baltic States and Poland from possible attacks by Russia if the Alliance does not comply with Ankara's request to declare the YPG Kurdish militia a terrorist group.

At a press conference with Trump, which lacked even embarrassing moments, Macron seemed irritated after the US president said the question of whether France should do more in accepting its struggling IS-backed citizens to the French president.

Apparently annoyed, Macron argued that the number of IS fighters in European countries was very small and that everyone should rather focus on the broader issue.

In northern Syria, some 400 French nationals are in captivity, including about 60 Islamist fighters.

Paris refuses to receive adults back and says they must be tried where the crimes were committed.

Trump then asked him if he wanted “some fine Islamist fighters. Take whoever you want,” Trump said in a carefree tone.

Macron replied that “everyone should be serious” and acknowledged that there are nationals from European countries among IS fighters, but that it is a priority to deal fully with IS and other terrorist groups.

Trump hinted that Macron had not answered the question.

“He's therefore a great politician because that's one of the best non-replies I've heard and that's OK,” Trump said.
