War Crimes, Atrocities in Cameroon: Turkey attacks France

Violations in English-speaking areas worry the international community

A senior official of the ruling Turkish party asks Paris to face the murders in which he is involved in Cameroon.

"What France should face legally, from Cameroon to Algeria, are the acts of violation of human rights and the murders committed by the French authorities". The tackle is Omer Celik, vice president and spokesperson of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), quoted by the Turkish Anadolu News Agency (AA).

The senior leader of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party was speaking on February 11 after a meeting of the Executive Committee of this political party.

"The French authorities should face the human rights violations and the murders in which they were involved, from Cameroon to Algeria," Omer Celik said on Monday, the news agency reported. "Dealing with history is essential for France," he added.

French President Emmanuel Macron provoked anger from the Turkish authorities. In a tweet, Emmanuel Macron announced that he will begin next April, a journey to commemorate the Armenian genocide.

The Armenian Genocide of 1915 attributed to Turkey is a sensitive issue in the old Ottoman Empire. Several Western countries, including France, acknowledged that the massacre was a genocide, provoking Turkey's anger every time.

A few days ago, it was Italy that attacked France on the CFA franc.
