Libya : for Emmanuel Macron, the Turkish policy is unfair - The Point

The French president Emmanuel Macron has accused Monday in Meseberg (Germany) Turkey in the libyan conflict, a "historical responsibility and the criminal" as a country that "claims to be a member of Nato". "We are at a point of necessary clarification of the Turkish policy in Libya, which for us is unacceptable," said Emmanuel Macron during a press conference with German chancellor Angela Merkel.

The Turkey of Recep Tayyip Erdogan "does not respect any of its commitments to the Berlin conference (held in January), has increased its military presence in Libya, and it has massively re-imported, fighters, jihadists from Syria," he blasted. "It is the historic responsibility and criminal Turkey, who claims to be a member of Nato, in any case, she now claims," added Emmanuel Macron.

Emmanuel Macron has also held that Russia was playing on the "ambivalence" of the presence of a private militia Russian militia, Wagner, and not soldiers of the Russian army.
