Paris demanded, today, Sunday, the countries of the Middle East in which there were calls to boycott French products to announce their position rejecting those calls, which started after statements by French President Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the memorial of a French teacher who was massacred after presenting cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in front of his students, during which Macron defended Caricature publishing right.

The French Foreign Ministry, quoted by the Russian agency Sputnik, considered that the calls to boycott French products in some countries of the Middle East deviate France’s position from its content, which is defending freedom of belief, freedom of expression, religious freedom and rejecting calls of hate.

Paris considered that the invitations are exploiting “for political purposes” the statements of the French president during the memorial service for teacher Samuel Patti, when Macron confirmed at a ceremony held at the Sorbonne University that France “will not abandon the drawings and caricatures,” considering that Batti “is a symbol of freedom.”

France called in a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the necessity to stop those calls for a boycott immediately, adding, “And the attack on France by an extremist minority must stop.”

Paris called on the countries in which there were calls to boycott French goods to declare their stance rejecting such calls and any attack on France, and also called for “securing the protection of French companies and the security of the French citizen abroad,” according to the statement.

President Macron also tweeted, coinciding with the issuance of the French statement, in several languages, including Arabic, saying, “Nothing makes us back down, never. We respect all differences in the spirit of peace. We never accept hate speech and defend rational debate. We will always stand by human dignity and universal values.” “

It is noteworthy that the French police announced a week ago the elimination of an aggressor who attacked and beheaded a person in the northwestern region of the capital, Paris, against the background of offensive cartoons of the Prophet of Islam (Muhammad), an incident described by President Emmanuel Macron as a “terrorist” and “an Islamist”.
