Macron accused of being a "sponsor of terrorism"

Macron accused of being a sponsor of terrorism - The French President Emmanuel Macron has been accused by Turkey's foreign minister of being a "sponsor of terrorism", dismissing the French leader's criticism of Turkey's Syria offensive. The foreign minister told reporters that Mr Macron wanted to be the leader of Europe but was "wobbling".

Last month Mr Macron angered Turkey by hosting an official from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Turkey views a section of the group - the YPG - as terrorists. The spat between Turkey and France comes in the week before the two Nato allies are due to attend a summit of the alliance in the UK.
