Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu Thursday slammed French President Emmanuel Macron's "extremely wrong," "populist" comments on Turkey and Algeria over colonialism.

Speaking at a news conference in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv after meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart, Cavusoglu said in response to a question that "it is extremely wrong to drag Turkey, which does not have a black mark, such as colonialism, in its history, into such debates."
