The Canadian Foreign Minister, François-Philippe Champagne, said that Canada expressed its solidarity with French President Emmanuel Macron and called the attacks on him by Turkish leader Tayyip Erdogan unacceptable. The Canadian diplomacy leader posted a message to this effect on his Twitter account on Monday.

“We stand in solidarity with our French friends. Turkey’s latest comments on France are completely unacceptable”, –  he wrote. Champagne also said that the parties should start a diplomatic conversation again.

On 24 October, the Turkish President made the statement that the Macron “needs treatment for mental disorders”. The Turkish leader thus responded to the French leader’s remarks about a terrorist attack in the Parisian suburb of Conflant-st Honorin, where an 18-year-old Islamist killed a schoolteacher on 16 October on the grounds of religious hatred. After the incident, Macron warned that the French authorities “are actively fighting against radical ideology bearers and the associations they have formed”.
