The foreign affairs ministry expressed its support for French President Emmanuel Macron in a tweet published on Sunday night after Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan claimed that “the person in charge of France has lost its way and needs a mental check.”

“We strongly condemn the derogatory remarks of the Turkish president made to the president of France,” the foreign ministry’s tweet, published in French, said.

“Such language is unacceptable and has no place in diplomacy.”

The French leader this month declared war on “Islamist separatism”, which he believes is taking over some Muslim communities in France.

On October 16, a schoolteacher was beheaded in Paris by an Islamist militant, avenging the use of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in a class on freedom of expression.

Macron’s office said on Saturday France had gathered its European partners, who share France’s demand that Turkey puts a stop to its “dangerous adventures” in the Mediterranean and in the region.

It said Erdogan had two months to respond or face measures, noting the absence of a condolence message from Turkey’s leader after the history teacher’s death last week.
