In a statement made by the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tanju Bilgic, it is extremely unfortunate that Macron, along with some other countries, makes statements targeting our country. It is unacceptable that French President Macron, who has difficulties in confronting his colonial past in Africa, especially Algeria, tries to get rid of his colonial past by accusing other countries, including our country.
‘ONE ENEMY FRANCE’
In the continuation of the statement, it was said, “To claim that these reactions are caused by the activities of third countries, instead of confronting and solving problems related to their own past, reflects the distorted mentality of some politicians.” Arguing that a “colossal manipulation” is being carried out against his country because Paris left the square empty, Macron said, “There are networks in Turkey, Russia and China that have activism, neo-colonial and imperialist agendas and are hostile to France at hand. There is only one enemy: France. It all comes together in this,” he said.
