French President Emmanuel Macron received his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Paris on Friday, with the Syrian conflict and media freedom in Turkey high on the agenda. On the subject of press freedom and terror, Erdogan appeared to accuse journalists of aiding and abetting terrorists through their writing. “Terror and terrorists have gardeners,” Erdogan is reported as saying. “They... Еще do not appear by themselves. They water from their columns on newspapers. One day these people appear in front of you as terrorists.” Erdogan also said that he is ‘tired’ of waiting for the EU to decide on Turkey’s membership. His visit takes place amid anti-Erdogan demonstrations over press freedom and the deterioration of human rights in the French capital.
