“What is Macron’s problem with Islam?” said Erdogan at the 7th AK Party Congress in Kayseri, while stressing that he (Macron) needed mental treatment.
“What can be said to a head of state who does not understand freedom of belief and thus behaves towards his millions of inhabitants of various beliefs? Above all, he needs mental control,” the Turkish President said.
“He’s constantly attacking me. It won’t do him any good. We will see what his fate will be in the elections. (This type of attitude) will not have won anything for France and will not win anything. We will continue to act in accordance with our principles,” Erdogan said.
In addition, the Turkish President said that efforts have intensified in recent times on the Iraqi border of Syria to establish a new terrorist organization there.
“We will never allow the formation of a “terrorist swamp” on Turkey’s borders, nor the establishment of a terrorist state. We will do what is necessary and dry this swamp. It has nothing to do with whether or not they are allies or friends.
If our interlocutors are our allies, then we must assess each issue in context and expect them to respect the outcome. Similarly for the eastern Mediterranean, instead of yielding to the whims of Greece and the Greek Cypriot sector, they should be in favor of international law. Even looking from the corner of the Eye to the Mediterranean map would prove Turkey right,” he noted.
Erdogan also spoke about the rise of Islamophobia in Europe and the raid by German police on a mosque in Berlin.”
Nothing can explain the raid on a mosque in Germany by hundreds of police officers. This is called Islamophobia. European fascism has reached a new level with this type of attack on the rights of Muslim citizens. Europe is preparing its own end with the fight it has launched against Muslims. If they do not put an end to it, this “disease” will eat away at the whole of Europe from within,” he warned.
Recently Erdogan has returned to the Armenian attacks on Azerbaijan.
“I spoke this morning with (Azerbaijani President Ilham) Aliyev. Our Azerbaijani brothers have begun to take back the occupied lands,” he said.
