Hours after attack in Germany Erdogan: same will happen in France
"The president ... paid tribute to the sacrifices and the determining role of the SDF in the fight against Daesh," Macron's office said in a statement.
Erdogan, during a rally on March 30, said, "I spoke with Macron in recent days and realized he says some very strange things. When he kept speaking so strangely - even though it may have been at a high frequency - I had to say something. Because it's not anyone’s place to describe our military forces in an unacceptable fashion,” Erdogan said."
Erdogan's spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin, on Saturday, criticized the United States over sending what it said were mixed messages on Syria, saying Washington was sowing confusion by equivocating about its future role in the country, Reuters reported.
“The President of the United States says ‘We’re going to get out of Syria very soon’ and then others say, ‘No, we are staying’,” Ibrahim Kalin said, referring to recent comments from U.S. President Donald Trump and other officials.
Meanwhile, , The U.S. policy of arming the PKK and YPG militants in Syria is a "point of discord" between Ankara and Washington, the Turkish foreign minister wrote.
“The United States has played into the hands of all its critics and opponents by deciding to form an alliance with terrorists despite its own values and its 66-year-old alliance with one of their primary targets, Turkey,” wrote Çavuşoğlu.
