Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekçi has responded to recent remarks by French President Emmanuel Macron in which he complained about having to speak with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan every 10 days.

Zeybekçi said: "I am telling you as a child of this nation. One day, you will recount your memories proudly and boastfully, saying 'I talked to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.' Don't forget that the conversations Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had with you are a privilege for you," Turkish Minute reports, referring to Doğan news agency.

Macron's remarks came during an interview with Le Point magazine, which asked if Macron was aiming to be "cool" on the global stage.

"The global stage is not really a 'cool' scene, you know. … I am the one who has to talk with Erdoğan every 10 days," said Macron.
