France has temporarily withdrawn this Sunday his ambassador to Ankara, the capital of Turkey, in protest of the words of the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who said this Saturday that his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, should look at your mental health.

“¿What problem does Macron have with Islam, what problem do you have with Muslims? Macron needs mental care therapy& rdquor ;, Erdogan said this Saturday, after the controversy in France about the murder of the French professor Samuel Paty, who taught in class some Muhammad cartoons.

Macron had been political charge about what the French president called “Islamist separatism & rdquor;, something that has not been liked in Turkey. “Before criticizing others, you should look at yourself & rdquor ;, Erdogan repeated this Sunday. “Like I said yesterday, yours is quite a mental case. [Macron] he needs to be checked & rdquor ;, continued the Turkish president.

In Turkey, Macron’s words criticizing Islamism and radical Islamism in France have resonated a lot, in all the media and at all hours of the day. It has not, however, the news of the murdered professor. That, the media close to the Erdogan government, have disregarded.

“The statements of President Erdogan are unacceptable. We demand that Erdogan change your policy because it is dangerous from all points of view. We did not enter pointless polemics and we do not accept insults & rdquor ;, said this Sunday the Elysee Palace it’s a statement.

Staunch enemy

If right now Turkey has a enemy – or perceives it as an enemy – in the world and in Europe, this is undoubtedly Macron’s France which, for the past few months, has been antagonizing Turkey not only in religious stuffbut in many other respects.

France and Turkey – both partners of the OTAN-, collide diametrically in Libya, where both support opposing factions in the civil war in the Arab country. France also gives political and military support to Greece and Cyprus, countries that dispute with Turkey the waters of economic exclusion from their borders in the Eastern mediterranean. France is one of the EU countries that most fervently asks sanctions against Erdogan and its government for its actions in the Mediterranean.
