French President Macron Opposes Turkish Operation In Libya Following Warship Standoff

On June 22nd, French President Emmanuel Macron accused Turkey of “playing a dangerous game” in Libya and said that France would not tolerate Ankara’s military intervention.

“I have already had the opportunity to say very clearly to President (Tayyip) Erdogan, I consider that Turkey is playing a dangerous game in Libya today and going against all of its commitments made at the Berlin conference,” Macron said alongside his Tunisian counterpart Kais Saied.

“We won’t tolerate the role that Turkey is playing in Libya,” he said.

The Tunisian president said that the current authority in Tripoli was temporary and that it needed to be replaced by a legitimate one, stemming from the people.

Macron also spoke with US President Donald Trump, and condemned the alleged activities of Russian mercenaries in Libya, but mostly focused on Turkey.

The alleged Russian mercenaries are reportedly supporting Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA) against Turkey and the Government of National Accord (GNA).

When asked about Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi suggesting he had a right to intervene in Libya, Macron said the Egyptian leader had reason to be worried.

“You noted the legitimate concern of President Sisi when he sees troops arriving at his border,” Macron said.

Turkish-backed forces are not operating near Egypt’s border, that could change if Turkey and the GNA begin pushing towards Sirte and even further east towards Benghazi.

“This is a Mediterranean subject that affects us because today from Libya each day men and women are fleeing misery to come to Europe. Do you think we can let Turkey for a long time import Syrian fighters to Libya given everything we know?”

Everything Macro is saying in regard to Turkey is a direct result from an incident involving Turkish and French warships in the Mediterranean.

French Defense Minister Florence Parly said that on June 10th Turkish warships flashed their radar lights three times at the French warship Courbet in the eastern Mediterranean.

She said the Courbet was on a NATO mission to check whether a Turkish vessel, the Cirkin, was smuggling arms to Libya after it turned off its transponder, failed to identify itself and did not give its final destination.

She added that Turkish sailors had also put on bullet-proof vests and stood behind their light weapons during the incident.

“There cannot be any complacency with regard to such behaviour. This particularly serious incident must be dealt with and our allies share our concerns because eight European allies gave me clear support today in NATO,” Parly said.

Turkish military officials rejected the French accusations as baseless, according to state-run Anadolu news agency.

“The Turkish armed forces has the experience to tell the difference between hazardous moves, harassment, friendly activities, cooperation, solidarity, and coordination,” an anonymous senior Turkish official said.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said the military alliance will investigate French accusations that Turkey’s navy failed to respond to an allied call for inspection this month in the Mediterranean.

    good on erdogan standing up to the evil nato-brethren who actually destroyed the most affluent country in africa for no reason what so ever and if the consequence is that israel’s plan to bring the palestinian gas to europe by pipe is stopped, so much the better. the gas the jews are trying to pass on is stolen property and belongs to the palestinian people and not the jews. but given what we know of jews, thievery and abject murder is part of their genome and they just can’t help themselves when they see something they can steal and claim as their own.

    1. Zionism = EVIL says:

      Exactly, that is why the Algerians who hate the froggies the most for plundering their country and Africa in general have lined up with Iran, Ansarallah and Hezbollah to support Turkey. The cowardly Egyptian cunt Sisi just held a military parade LOL

      1. verner says:

        but sisi is beholden to the white house gang of morons (even though he buys russian weapons (for the price advantage)) and will not threaten the safe place to enrich himself beyond even his wildest dreams, a la mabarak

        1. Zionism = EVIL says:

          Indeed, but look at the ultimate irony, the deadbeat Egyptians are buying Russian weapons with dumbass Americunt taxpayers money. Egyptian beggars and the Zionist parasites are the biggest recipients of aid and grants.

      2. Brother Ma says:

        Why is Sisi so bad when he got rid of the Moslem Brotherhood?

    2. Brother Ma says:

      Do you think that Erodgan is the Honest Broker here do you? What about Greece,Egypt and Cyprus’s rights to build a pipeline of their own gas to Europe? What about that? No thought for them or a word of encouragement or support?

      1. verner says:

        the jews are desperate to ship their stolen gas to europe via pipeline and would need permission from various countries and with turkey’s set up with libya, if it works out, will stop any such plans. egypt are already freezing the lng to a liquid and intend to ship it by boat, like qatar and australia are both doing. the value of pipe-transported gas is better than any shipped gas so, bearing in mind the avariciousness of the jews, the pipeline is what they will go for and they have already had pompeo in lebanon demanding right of way for a jew-pipeline across lebanon’s seabed – the answer was no. greece! gas? don’t think so and moreover a pipeline across the eastern med seabed to italy – yeah sure dream on. the jews will be bankrupt even before they start or hopefully kicked all the way to hell by their loving neighbours.

        1. Brother Ma says:

          Even if Egypt does ship their gas that still leaves Greece and Cyprus left out. I never said that Israel must be part of any such pipeline ,you did. Let’s leave the Jews out of it.

          So why are you against Egypt,Greece and Cyprus shipping their gas via pipeline? There is no requirement to go to Italy via the Med. The pipeline could go to Greece and up to Italy via The Otranto Strait.

          1. verner says:

            I seem to recall that the jews are part of a pipeline consortium with cyprus and I assume greece to pipe the stuff to italy and that is something turkey never will allow. greece is small whereas italy is a much better landing point with a great number of receiving branches right and left. turkey is much in favour of an iranian/qatar pipe and the jews will just have to liquify the stuff jointly with egypt and sell it to the world by ship – unless of course the other parties in the area have managed to displace the jews and sent them on wards to their next diaspora and the gas the jews are attempting to sell has been returned to the rightful owners, the palestinians.

          2. Brother Ma says:

            You did not answer my question. Noone cares what Turkey wants. It is none of its business as the pipeline does not go through Turkey’s economic area. Simple. Turkey needs to keep its nose out of here.

  2. Zionism = EVIL says:

    The little Jew froggy cunt Macron, married to his grandmother can go fuck himself, Turkey could kick the froggies in the arse anyday. BTW, very interesting coalition forming supporting Turkey, Iran, Algeria, Hezbollah, Ansarallah and even Assad has told Egypt not to fall into Zionist trap.

    1. Lazy Gamer says:

      So that was why the Russians left. lol Turkish presence in Idlib still has to be forced out by Syria.

      1. Zionism = EVIL says:

        Erdogan today said that Turkey has “no problem” with Assad, he just needs to change his “behavior”. I believe Iran and Turkey will work it out in Syria over time. They have too much common history and common views on most issues ranging from the Kurd turd to the Zionist occupation of Palestine. Turkey is even supporting the Ansarallah in Yemen and Iran has restrained Hezbollah from attacking Turkish forces in Syria.

        Egypt, Jordan and Saudi scum are universally considered as Zionist tools in the region.

        1. ΠΑΡΜΕΝΙΩΝ says:

          Yes but this we call Zion has two faces.. This moment there is a war inside in Zion. This war we see him everywhere inside US, in France , with the yellow vests, even inside in Israel.

    2. Tommy Jensen says:

      Nobody is telling an American what we should tell Egypt. No one!

      1. Zionism = EVIL says:

        Come on sweetie, don’t be so silly, your Jew cunts are pulling the strings as usual.

    3. Dick Von Dast'Ard says:

      Have to disagree with you there, (which is a rare thing) the French military is a more powerful force than the Turkish one.

      I can only see this Libya-Med control issue escalating, so I guess we shall soon see something tangible happen.

      1. Zionism = EVIL says:

        Yes on paper again, the froggies have lost every war from Indo-China to Algeria and the real issue that the NATO hyenas are literally all over each other for Libyan oil. Macron is not liked by his Americunt masters and the Algerians, who are strongest power in Maghreb are allied with Iran and Turkey and hate the Froggies with a passion and will not allow Macron to interfere, as France is already meddling in all of Algeria’s neighbors in the Sahel and supporting the Moroccan pimps in occupied western Sahara. Algeria has a very powerful battle tested military and the froggies have tested them in the war of national liberation and lost. France without Americunt masters approval will do jack, but bitch. Libya now is pretty much a fait accompli.

  3. Peter Jennings says:

    Warmonger squabbles.
    How dare the Turkish admin use their forces to kill Libyan’s and buy its oil for pennies a barrel when the French admin have been doing it for decades. It’s clear that nato have a problem dividing the spoils between themselves after invading the country, killing its people and murdering their leader.

    1. Zionism = EVIL says:

      Exactly, all the thieves want a free gas station, the Americunt, limey gits and Jew parasites set the trend with Saudi idiots and tried that in Iran with the BP Mossedegh overthrow of 1953, but that did not turn out too kosher. So Libya is a low hanging fruit.

      1. verner says:

        and the gang of morons in the white house are now after the oil in venezuela and the idiot trump is now tryin’ another kim jung un caper (which failed miserably) with Maduro but when he heard the howl of derision from them stupid dems, he changed the tune so that the meeting was to negotiate Maduro’s stepping down, which won’t happen.

      2. Simon Ndiritu says:

        I previously thought that since the oil prices collapsed, oil thieves would be discouraged from stealing it. It seams their appetite for stealing oil hasn’t changed

        1. Zionism = EVIL says:

          Actually, the hyenas are getting more desperate for any natural resource as there is more competition in the free for all new world disorder pushed by the Bilderberg Jews. Turkey has a big economy and is totally without any natural resources and the EU arseholes are literally bankrupt. Look at the French and Italian shitholes. The idea behind the murder of Kaddafi was that the French, Italians and Canadians would plunder Libya and also pay royalty to their dumbass Americunt masters who will have an addition source of income to fund terrorism and Zionist fanned wars. However, Libya was too tempting and many new bandits jumped in. To be fair, I would prefer Turkey to control Libya as the Egyptian and UAE cunts are totally in Zionist pockets and the Italians are just broke petty thieves and pose no threat to anyone. Half their population is sleeping on park benches anyway and whoring during the Pimpeovirus.


          1. Brother Ma says:

            I’d actually prefer a Libyan government of the people and failing that one by Haftar and failing that by Greece who is actually the most neutral member in Europe and who had the best relations with Libya and has a common maritime and Economic Area Border with them.Of all the candidates Turkey is the one least suitable .

          2. Lazy Gamer says:

            To be fair, the only one to control Libya are the Libyan people. Hopefully, not the animals that started its civil war.

  4. Domenic Patrone says:

    Macron wants Turkey to focus on the north of Syria in mass, which would give Israel time to secure the best parts, or that which it wants for itself when they finally got involved. But Turkey would do most of the fighting and hopefully get beaten up to the point where it could not counter any NWO orders as to how the newly won land could be governed .. and that would be by Israel and it’s overlord there who would finance new construction and a new semi to non Islamic culture amidst the decline of the whole place all together with many deaths in the process even after fighting has minimized if it ever does.

  5. Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes says:

    deflection from syria and taqiyya. Macron is such a cunt

    1. Zionism = EVIL says:

      Jew midget cunt to be exact, he worked for Goldman Sachs and was the architect of the Greek rip off.

      1. Brother Ma says:

        Was he really the main man at Goldman who did the Greek Ripoff? I ask because in Varoufakis’s book Macron comes out as being neutral , benign and wanting to help Greece get a loanrestructure and away from the Trio.

  6. Dick Von Dast'Ard says:

    If Eu’s core (France, Germany and Italy) allows Turkey to dominate Libya, then the Eu as a power bloc is finished.

    Keeping Turkey Out of Libya? Egyptian President El Sisi Orders Air Force to Prepare For Missions Beyond Borders

    Addressing Egyptian airmen, the president was quoted by local media as having stated: “I am happy that I am meeting you today and am reassured by you on the efficiency, technical and combat status of the armed forces…

    The Egyptian Air Force’s combat fleet is mostly comprised of antiquated second and fourth generation designs, with the F-16s which form its backbone denied access to modern munition types for either air to air or air to ground roles due to political restrictions placed by the United States. This seriously limits their potential. Under El Sisi’s presidency the Air Force has received much more modern types of aircraft and standoff missiles including Mig-29M and Rafale medium fighters. Egypt is also soon set to receive Su-35 heavyweight air superiority fighters which will form the elite of its combat fleet.

      Sounds wonderful.
