The anger of Recep Tayyip Erdogan seems to have been brought about by the Greek-French alliance against the Turkish provocation, with the Turkish president responding to Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Emanuel Macron with a video from the past.
The Turkish president is heard saying to the “wolves”, as he states:
“Forgive us but we are too big for you, you can not eat us.”
After the plenary session of the Euro-Mediterranean Conference, Emanuel Macron sent a message of solidarity to Greece for both the Turkish challenges and Moria.
In fact, in the text of the conclusions (Declaration of Ajaccio) and in paragraph 6 concerning peace and stability in the Mediterranean, the leaders express their full support and solidarity in Greece and Cyprus for the repeated violations of sovereignty and sovereign rights, such as for Turkey’s offensive actions.
They call on all countries in the region to comply with international law, in particular International Maritime Law, and encourage all parties to resolve their differences through dialogue and negotiation.
Anger in Ankara over Macron statements
Yesterday, Ankara launched an attack against France, denouncing the statements of the French president as “arrogant”.
“French President Macron has once again made arrogant statements, with an old colonial reflex,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that the French head of state was “encouraging tensions and jeopardizing Europe’s interests and endangering Europe’s interests.” Union “.
A spokesman for Turkey’s ruling AKP party, Omer Celik, also launched an attack on the French president, claiming he was using Greece to “play the role of colonial in the Eastern Mediterranean”.
“It was Macron who brought a country like France to its current sad state. Macron is trying to cover up his inability to lead France with an aggressive foreign policy. Macron is in charge of Haftar’s mass graves. Using Greece, Macron tries to play the role of a colonialist in the Eastern Mediterranean. And he is attacking the President (s.s. Erdogan) because our President does not allow him to pursue his aggressive policy in the region… Do not confuse us with other countries that you can easily fool. “Turkey does not give the most appropriate response to your threats.”
