Erdogan calls for boycott of French goods, EU calls his comments ‘unacceptable’
Turkish President urged European leaders to stop the hate campaign allegedly launched by French President Macron
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on fellow citizens to boycott French goods in response to France’s “anti-Islamic” agenda, as he called it.
In a televised speech, he also called on EU countries to put pressure on France to end the efforts of French President Emmanuel Macron to fight “Islamic separatism”.
Macron said separatism threatens to take over some Muslim communities in France.
“Never praise French products. Don’t buy them, ”Erdogan said..
He added that “European leaders should demand that the French president stop his hate campaign.”.
Tensions between the two NATO members have escalated in recent months. Macron has pledged to protect the country’s secular character following the recent public beheading of a French teacher by a militant Muslim over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Macron called Islam a “crisis-ridden” religion and announced measures to tackle what he called separatism, BBC reported.
