TEHRAN (IQNA) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday slammed his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron for using the expression of “Islamic terrorism” without knowing the true meaning of Islam.


“The head of France talks about Islamic terrorism at the NATO summit,” Erdogan said at a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul, referring to NATO’s 70th-anniversary summit held in London last week.

“I told him that the meaning of Islam is peace. How can you combine the words, peace and terror, by using the expression of Islamic terrorism?” remarked the Turkish president.

Speaking about the ongoing Yellow Vests demonstrations in France against increasing living costs, Erdogan called on Macron to solve the issue as soon as possible. “Why can’t you solve it? Why can’t you stop it?” he asked, according to APP.
