To unite and attack to Syria: Turkey determined to improve ties with France
According to Turkish Press, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said his country was determined to improve bilateral relations with France.
“We have deep-rooted and historical ties between Turkey and France, and our both countries are committed to move relations forward in a visionary and positive spirit,” Davutoglu told a press conference in Paris after a bilateral meeting with his French counterpart Laurent Fabius on Thursday.
Davutoglu said there would be more frequent high level talks between the two countriesâ€™ officials and their parliaments, adding that cooperation would be also be boosted in many regional issues.
Davutoglu said France had become “more positive” over Turkeyâ€™s European Union accession bid, adding that he had called for the removal of Franceâ€™s blocking on five policy areas in Turkeyâ€™s membership negotiations and that France was likely to assume a more positive stance in that respect.
The Turkish FM said Turkey had lifted sanctions it started imposing on France after a row in January over a French legislation that made it illegal to deny Armenian allegations on the incidents of 1915 in Ottoman Turkey.
The law was later annulled by Franceâ€™s top constitutional authority.
Davutoglu said Turkey was set to open two consulates in Bordeaux and Nantes as well as a culture center in Paris.
France is one of the major opponents of Turkey becoming a member of EU. Paris also supports Kurdish terrorists and Armenians against Turkey. Amid these facts, it seems that Turkey is keen to lead a war against Syria at any cost., Voice of a Nation
