Macron responds to Erdogan’s statements, in which he said that he is “a burden on France’s shoulders”

French President Emmanuel Macron called on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to abide by respect, after the latter described it as a “burden on France’s shoulders”.

The French president told reporters on Friday that Erdogan was limiting the freedoms available to the Turkish people.

The Turkish president launched a scathing attack on his French counterpart, expressing his hope that his country would “get rid” of him soon.

“Macron is a misfortune for France, and under Macron’s presidency, France is going through a very dangerous period,” Erdogan told reporters upon leaving the Hagia Sophia teacher in Istanbul after Friday prayers.

I hope that France will get rid of the Macron problem as soon as possible.
