On the morning of the 25th local time, French Foreign Minister Le Drian issued an announcement stating that the French ambassador to Turkey had been recalled and returned to Paris on the 25th to discuss the situation.
The announcement stated that after the recent terrorist attacks in France, Turkish officials did not express any condemnation or sympathy. Instead, they have launched hatred and slanderous propaganda against France in the past few days, intending to provoke hatred against France and within France. In addition, the highest level of the Turkish state also directly insulted the French president. This is an unacceptable behavior, especially since this behavior also originated from the French allies.
On the 16th of this month, a terrorist attack on a middle school history teacher took place in the northwestern suburbs of Paris. The brutal methods shocked the whole country. The Macron government immediately launched a series of actions to combat religious extremism, ordered the closure of religious organizations and venues with extremist tendencies, and planned to expel more than 200 extremists. Turkish President Erdogan publicly expressed dissatisfaction with these actions and said in a television speech on the 24th local time that Macron “needs a mental examination.”
