French President Emmanuel Macron responded strongly on Saturday to the new attacks by his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and recalled the French ambassador to Paris, a rare diplomatic act.

The Élysée denounced the judged remarks to AFP unacceptable of the Turkish President – who had questioned mental health Emmanuel Macron because of his attitude towards Muslims -, but also noted <q data-attributes = "{" lang ": {" value ":" fr "," label ":" Français "}," value " : {"html": "the absence of messages of condolence and support from the Turkish president after the assassination of Samuel Paty"," text ":" the absence of messages of condolence and support from the Turkish president after the assassination of Samuel Paty "}}" lang = "fr”>the absence of messages of condolence and support from the Turkish president after the assassination of Samuel Paty, this teacher beheaded by an Islamist near Paris about a week ago.

The French wrath is reflected in the immediate recall of the French ambassador to Ankara, it seems for the first time in the history of Franco-Turkish diplomatic relations. The act, says the entourage of Emmanuel Macron, is intended a very strong signal.

The previous recall to Paris of a French ambassador in consultation, as the saying goes, dates back to February 2019, to protest against a meeting between Luigi di Maio, then Italian Deputy Prime Minister, and yellow vests.

Last November, Mr. Erdogan had already questioned the mental health of Emmanuel Macron, responding to the words of the French president on the brain death NATO by inviting it to examine your own brain death.

Insults and provocations by Erdogan, we have had them almost every week this summer, we admitted on Saturday in the entourage of President Macron. What would change this time is the context.

Internationally, it is emphasized, the lines have moved. We have awakened European partners to the risk posed by Erdogan in the Eastern Mediterranean, in the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, in Libya, or even in Syria.

In France especially, the Conflans-Sainte-Honorine attack led the executive to step up the initiative already underway against political Islam, arousing the anger of the Turkish Islamoconservative leader.

Ankara denounces

Two weeks ago, Mr. Erdogan denounced as a provocation the statements of his French counterpart on the Islamist separatism and the need to structuring Islam in France, while the executive presented its future bill on this subject.

He hit the nail on the head on Saturday in a televised speech: <q data-attributes = "{" lang ": {" value ":" fr "," label ":" Français "}," value ": {" html ": "All you can say about a head of state who treats millions of members of different religious communities in this way is: go do mental health exams first "," text ":" All you can say about a head of state who treats millions of members of different religious communities in this way is: go do mental health exams first "}}" lang = "en”>All you can say about a head of state who treats millions of members of different religious communities in this way is: go get mental health exams first..

For the Élysée, excess and rudeness d'Ankara spend less than ever, two days after the tribute ceremony to Samuel Paty at the Parisian University of the Sorbonne.

In his speech Thursday evening, Emmanuel Macron had notably promised that France would continue to defend the cartoons. Since then, according to the president's entourage, the Turks are spreading some kind of absurd propaganda, for example that the president has decided to project the cartoons of Muhammad on public buildings.

Calls to boycott French products have also been increasing since Friday in several Arab countries in reaction to the presidential speech at the Sorbonne. In the eyes of Paris, there is an Islamist campaign against France. It is organized, it is not a coincidence, and the transmitters are very largely Turkish.

Basically, tensions in the Mediterranean to the conflict in Libya, through the clashes in Nagorno-Karabakh, many issues currently oppose Paris and Ankara.

The Élysée called again on Saturday that Turkey put an end to its dangerous adventures in the Mediterranean and in the region, and denounced the irresponsible behavior from Ankara to Nagorno-Karabakh.

There are requirements. Erdogan has two months to respond. Action will need to be taken at the end of this year, declared the Élysée about the eastern Mediterranean.
