France ‘cannot give lessons’ over Syria: Turkey

ISTANBUL (AFP) – Turkey on Thursday told France to stop lecturing it over its campaign in Syria, where Ankara is pressing a fierce offensive against a Kurdish militia.

The warning from Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu came a day after French President Emmanuel Macron told Ankara it would be a “real problem” if its intervention turned into an outright “invasion”.

“France cannot give us lessons on this issue,” Cavusoglu told reporters in televised comments.

“We are not France, which occupied Africa,” he said referring to France’s colonial past.
