BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – For the second time this week, the French President Emmanuel Macron has infuriated the Ankara with his remarks about topics relevant to Turkey.

Macron told the Coordinating Council of Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations in France (CCAF) that he is considering a proposal that would add the Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide to the French calendar.

Furthermore, Macron will consider proposing a genocide denial law to parliament.

“The fight for justice and recognition is our fight,” Macron stated, as quoted by Armenian Radio.

In response, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu slammed the French President’s remarks and advised him to not make comments that damage their diplomatic relations.

Cavusoglu also stated that Macron is in no position to “teach a lesson” to Turkey over its latest offensive in Afrin, as France invaded Algeria in the mid-1900s

Tough luck for Turks.

Nobody listens to them anymore.

Not even his own people.

Those are just afraid and silenced.

Well said Prez. Macron… And “sultan” Erdogollum should take good care : he already had very negative ‘signals’ from small EU nations. Turkish MIT (intelligence agency) is indicted in 6 cases of TERRORISM in France and Germany after 3 murders and 3 assassination attempts on Kurd refugees… Idiotic Erdolf should better get that with the EU, Germany acts like the carrot and France is the stick… Erdogan should also remember what happened in Libya : while F-22, B-2 and after 2023-2025, F-35, can be detected and shot down using UHF/VHF radars, it doesn’t works with Rafale, in other terms, S-400… Read more »

Beautiful and precise. The “Small-minded” hardline Turks are so proud of their “Ottomaness” that they use the term when they want to threaten peoples of different ethnicities, they refer to genocidal treatment and annihilarion they hastily master to destroy what they cannot build.

“France invaded Algeria in the mid-1900s” and Turkey does not remember that the European attacks against the states along the Barbary coast were in retaliation of centuries of Muslim pirate atrocities and depredations.

The Armenia is not the only one between 1895 and now. So what did the Assyrians, Bulgarians, Pontic Greeks, Armenians and Kurds do against Turkey – except that they fought for freedom?
