“All as in France, some say “don’t buy Turkish brands”, I am speaking here to my nation. Above all, don’t be interested in French brands, don’t buy them ”, hammered on Monday the Turkish president during a speech in Ankara. By pretending to follow the attitude of certain French people, Recep Tayyip Erdogan thus called for a boycott of products from France. Unlike Qatar or Kuwait, “No call for a boycott had been broadcast so far on the country’s social networks”, However, Selçuk Önder, president of the Franco-Turkish Chamber of Commerce (CCFT) puts it into perspective. And even if the president encourages his fellow citizens, “Many barriers make such an operation difficult”, he continues.
“Institutionally, a boycott is not possible. There is a customs union agreement between the European Union and Turkey. And Ankara continues the process of integration into the EU. Meetings are held regularly internally on this subject ”, adds Bahadir
