'Are you brain-dead?': Erdogan to Macron

Nov 30, 2019 13:20 IST

Turkey President Erdogan on Friday hit out at French president Emmanuel Macron over the latter's warning that NATO was dying. Telling Macron to check if he was brain dead, Erdogan said that his comments reflect a "sick and shallow" understanding. In a sharp rebuke, the French foreign ministry summoned Turkey's ambassador to Paris to protest over what a French presidential adviser called "insults". Macron had said that NATO is experiencing "brain death" because of US unpredictability under President Donald Trump and strained ties with Turkey.
