  • In Libya, Macron rejects Islamist influence in the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli. It also condemned Ankara’s assistance to the GNA.
  • In NATO, Macron warns that the alliance could suffer “brain death” because of Turkey. He accuses Erdogan of being ambivalent about defending Western values.
