Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron seized the opportunity of Monday’s NATO summit to have “long” talks, Macron said.
The two NATO allies frequently clashed over the past year, and sometimes harsh words were spoken.
The chat was really going on, Macron’s staff say. The two are said to have spoken for 45 minutes in the hopes of “clarifying their differences of opinion about Turkey’s actions in Syria, Libya and Azerbaijan, and against Greece and Cyprus.
To continue with clarity and respect,” said the French president.
