Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has issued a stern warning to French President Emmanuel Macron, who called on Turkey to stop its gas exploration in the Mediterranean.

“What are you saying, what are you doing there? We have coasts in this region,” Erdogan said during a speech at a meeting of the General Assembly of the Turkish Exporters Council in Istanbul.

“We are a guarantor country in Cyprus, Greece and Britain, but you have no identity,” Erdogan said in his speech condemning Macron’s remarks.

Turkish President Macron called for highlighting evidence that he had the power to speak on behalf of energy giants.

“You seem to have left the presidency and start advocating, but when Erdogan talks, he speaks as a guarantor country, as are Greece and Britain, and you are in any capacity to speak? Turkish president said

The French president has called on Turkey to stop its gas exploration activities in the eastern Mediterranean near the coast of Cyprus amid escalating tensions in the region due to differences over its energy resources.
